Variety notes that Hollywood is supporting relief efforts in Haiti, with telethons involving everyone from George Clooney to Bono and donations in the millions pouring in.

On the East Coast, “Gabriel Byrne, Terry George, and others have organized a “Rebuild Haiti” fundraiser in New York for Thursday night to benefit Concern Worldwide and the Edeyo Foundation.”

Kudos to Mr. Byrne, Susan Sarandon, Terry George, Alan Cumming, and everyone who is supporting this event and helping Haiti!

Thanks to Ann for the heads up.

Update: here is more information about the benefit, thanks to Lara!

    Haiti is a terrible catastrophe area and we all have to help. Thanks to Gabriel and the other celebrities who remind us about that.
