Charities Start To Receive $$ From The Haiti Telethon

The January 22, star-studded telethon for Haiti raised $66 million for the victims of the earthquake. (This is less than the $150 million raised during 9/11's "A Tribute to Heroes" telethon, but more than the $40 million raised after Hurricane Katrina's "Shelter from the Storm" telethon.) Last week, telethon organizers announced which charities would receive the first round of funding totaling $35 million:

A second round of funding will be allocated in May. That grant money will support rebuilding efforts. The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund is expected to receive some of that money.
