Organizers for last night’s incredible “Hope For Haiti” telethon have announced preliminary total donations of more than $58 million — a record for public support through a disaster relief telethon.

What’s even more incredible is that number does not take into account donations from corporations or large private donors. And, as the cash continues to flow in from around the world, we’re likely to see a final tally much higher than $58 million. The “Hope For Haiti” album on iTunes also is currently #1 in more than 18 countries.

According to a news release, people will be able to make donations to “Hope for Haiti” via phone, Web, text messaging and regular mail for the next six months. Proceeds from the telethon will benefit Oxfam America, Partners in Health, the Red Cross, UNICEF, the U.N. World Food Programme, Yele Haiti Foundation and the Clinton Bush Haiti Foundation.

Donations can be made online at HopeForHaitiNow.org, over the phone by calling (877) 99-HAITI, by texting the word “GIVE” to 50555 or by mail addressed to Hope for Haiti Now Fund, Entertainment Industry Foundation, 1201 West 5th St., Suite T-700, Los Angeles, CA, 90017.
