Why no aid to the West which is burning out of control? Why has FEMA withheld support for them? When will all these celebrities come together and collect for the West? The fires are just as destructive and life threatening as the hurricanes!
Does this mean Beyoncé and her husband, Oprah will donate $20 million themselves since they are worth billions and the others such as Cher, Madonna, Robert DiNero, Meryl Streep, and others will donate $2 to $5 million apiece since they have millions! So after this telethon is over there will be over $300 million plus from all of these celebrities!!! 🙂
When Steven Colbert was talking, you could see Beiber behind him just holding the phone up to his ear. He looked so bored. There was obviously no one on the other end. They didn't show the Beibs after that!
One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to participating charities assisting in relief efforts. Beneficiaries of the telethon include the Rebuild Texas Fund, ASPCA, Best Friends, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas, Feeding Florida, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, and United Way.

I watched the phone banks closely. Very staged, hardly anyone writing any information other than George Clooney doodling with his pen. Many simply held the phone to their ears without talking. At least try to be more realistic... I think every one of them would have more credibility had they shown what they made last year and what they donated before asking the common folk to donate what we could. Hopefully comic relief will use their 89% of the donations to go to better causes than aspca and united way....
I enjoyed it. A lot of people showed up. I mean a whole lot of people, some I hadn't seen in years. It was cool and nice to see.I think a lot of y'all complain too much. ✌🏼from Houston TX, but born and bred in Florida... #DoublyAffected
A whole bunch of Hollywood liberals raise 14 million, and JJ Watt gets over 30 million by himself. It will be interesting to see how the money will be distributed.
What a wonderful thing these artists have done. To put this together so quickly and give their time freely. They always come together when it's needed. I wish I could thank each one.
"A-list celebrities came out in droves to take part in the hurricane relief benefit."
...and didn't disappoint by politicizing what should have been a night pointed simply to those in need. Typical ,,,,, and so predictable.
I know the celebrities are working the phones but I would love to know what each celebrity with their millions of dollars has donated themselves just asking I know a lot of them only donated $25,000 which it might sound a little selfish on my part but I think is a little bit cheap on their part
