We know Haiti is in major destruction, possibly 150,000 dead and celebrities coming to the rescue. George Clooney has a telethon this Saturday on VH-1 with Haitian star Wycliff Jean, who's been defending his YELE foundation.

Latino celebs also helping.  This morning a bunch of celebrities arriving in Haiti starting with Don Francisco, who will be taping segments for his star studded telethon on Saturday night on the Univision network.  Don Omar and Vin Diesel also arrive with a plane full of water, baby formula, and other needed items.  Ricky Martin arrived yesterday and through an association with his foundation and Habitat for Humanity, will help in the rebuilding of houses destroyed in the earthquake.

Reggaeton duo Winsin Yandel are donating $100,000, Luis Miguel donated $30,000, and Julio Iglesias also donated a splendid donation in private.  Don Omar also has a goal of raising $1,000,000 for rebuilding Haitian orphanages in 2010.
