While this month's earthquake in Haiti has led to incomprehensible damage and death figures, there's been the tiniest of silver linings:
Countless celebrities have come together in support of the victims in that poor, needy nation. Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock, Madonna and many others have donated money to the cause, while George Clooney has organized a telethon that will air on every major network this Friday night.
Among the young stars that will appear on the telecast are Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron and Taylor Swift. We can now add Selena Gomez to that list.
The 17-year-old actress posted the following on her Facebook page today:
“I will be on the phones during George Clooney & Joel Gallen’s Hope for Haiti Now telethon this Friday from 5pm to 7pm PST. I am so honored to be an active participant in this amazing fund raising event.
"Be sure to tune in, you cannot miss it it is on MTV, over 30 major TV networks, and CNN worldwide. Let’s all come together and help those in Haiti.”
We couldn't agree more, Selena.
Adam Lambert is also on board with the cause. Below, watch his PSA on behalf of the Red Cross.
