So Sandra Bullock gave $1M.

The "kissing saint" of India, a (Hindu?) female religious leader, gave $22M. I can't find a link to this on the web, I saw it on CNN TV.

I am surprised the "liberal elite" of Hollywood haven't been donating in droves already. A lot of them make a lot more than Bullock. Tom Cruise? Tom Hanks? Jim Carey?

John Travolta bought himself an $11M zeppelin for Xmas. Where is he now?

Hopefully they are all consulting with their accountants and will get on the ball soon.

Perhaps some just choose not to be public about it...could that be possible?

Not everyone needs/wants public recognition for doing what's right either.

Not everyone wants to serve as some sort of example.

Just a couple thoughts, that's all.

Yeah, I think if I were a celebrity I wouldn't want to invite the judgment on how much I gave or whom I decided to support...I would probably be discreet about it. I assume most people who have a lot of money are giving in some way--how can you have a heart at all and not want to do something?

I mean unless you're Bush, in which case you should probably just keep enjoying your holiday

You know though, her one million won't deprive her of a full cart of groceries the way a typical citizen's donation of one hundred might. She doesn't really deserve that much praise, generous as she might be. And she is, I am not trying to say she is not. But it's the ordinary person who makes small sacrifices to give that is the real hero.
