Russell and Others Donate to Haitian Schools

From USA Today:

"Stars pledge money to Haiti for the next five years"

Just in: The Artists for Peace and Justice organization is announcing support for Haiti in a different, more long-term, way from a roster of Hollywood stars.

Simon Baker, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Jackson Browne, Gerard Butler, Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe, Clint Eastwood, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Sean Penn and Olivia Wilde are among the celebs who plan to each contribute $50,000 annually for the next five years ($250,000 total). Each donation will go to sustaining a street school in Port-au-Prince, including providing clean water, meals, medical supplies and educational material to the children.
