Recently, Leonardo DiCaprio pledged $1 million through his foundation, prompting President Bill Clinton to respond with gratitude.

“I am grateful for the generous gift Leonardo DiCaprio and his Foundation have made in support of our Clinton Bush Haiti Fund,” Clinton said. “Combined with the outpouring of donations from Americans and citizens around the world of all means, this support will go a long way to help save more lives, reach more people with emergency assistance, and help the Haitian people build their nation back stronger and more secure than it was before the earthquake.”

During the telethon last week, George Clooney also contributed $1 million.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Aniston has pledged $500,000 to benefit Doctors Without Borders, Partners in Health and Americares.
