One week after the catastophic earthquake that left Haiti in ruins, the world community is converging to help rebuild a country that was barely functioning before the disaster happened. Meanwhile, aid groups on the ground are working to get desperately needed assistance to victims in an environment of chaos.

Friday, George Clooney organized and produced a telethon to raise money for Haiti. The figures aren't in yet, but we hear a substantial amount of funds were raised with performances by Modonna, Sting, Jay Z, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake, to name a few; and celebreties like Robert DeNiro,Jennifer Aniston, and Ellen Barkin working the phones.
