Tonight at 8 P.M. ET/PT there will be a gigantic, star-studded telethon fund-raiser for the victims of the Haitian earthquake. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Samuel L. Jackson and dozens of other famous people (130-140 in all) will be there to answer phones and help raise money. Musical artists like Madonna, Shakira, Sting, Alicia Keys, and Dave Matthews will also be playing. There will even be a collaboration between Bono, The Edge, Jay-Z, and Rihanna.

The broadcast will be one of (if not the) largest in history. It will air simultaneously across dozens of U.S. and Canadian networks, and will also be broadcast internationally on BET, CNN, National Geographic and MTV Networks. In addition, it will be available on all terrestrial radio stations worldwide, as well as Sirius XM Radio via MTV Radio and Westwood One.

Donations will start being accepted at 12 P.M. ET. All money raised will go to Oxfam America, Partners in Health, the Red Cross, UNICEF, United Nations World Food Programme, Yele Haiti Foundation, and the Clinton/Bush Haiti Foundation. After the show, the full two-hour broadcast will be available for $1.99, while the album of the full performance will cost $7.99. All of the revenues from those sales will go to help Haiti as well.

To donate, you can visit Hope for Haiti Now's webpage. Or, you can donate to Doctors without Borders and help out that way. It doesn't matter who you give to, as long as you're doing something to help. We can all postpone our next big gadget purchase for a few weeks. These people need that money far worse than we probably ever will.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
