Hilary Duff, Madonna Join Tsunami Aid
The teen star and the Material Mom are contributing in their separate ways
Hilary Duff is donating a portion of all ticket sales from her sold-out Most Wanted tour to aid tsunami relief efforts, and Madonna, Norah Jones, Eric Clapton and Mary J. Blige are among those joining the roster of stars on Saturday’s NBC disaster-relief telethon.
“I, just like everyone else, have watched this terrible tragedy and feel so sorry for the children and the families who have lost so much,” Duff, 17, said in a statement. She will give the money to Kids with a Cause, which helps children who suffer from poverty, hunger, sickness, lack of education, abandonment, neglect and abuse, the Associated Press reports. “I want to do everything I can to help those that have survived,” she says.
As for Saturday’s live Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope, the TV fund-raiser will air on all NBC stations and benefit the American Red Cross. Musicians scheduled to appear include India.Arie, Kenny Chesney, Sheryl Crow, Gloria Estefan, Lenny Kravitz, Tom Jones, John Mayer, Sarah McLachlan and Roger Waters, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Rounding out the show will be a lineup of celebrities that includes Halle Berry, Matt Damon, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas, Rhea Pearlman, Tim Robbins, Kevin Spacey, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta-Jones and George Clooney – who has invited his sparring partner, FOX commentator Bill O’Reilly, to join in too.
