I think it's awesome that all these celebs stepped up and donated both $ and their time to this.

I'm going to do my part and donate blood to the Red Cross.
That's so great of you, Lamb. I can't give blood (diabetic) but I have given money and will give whatever more I can.
Has anyone tried to call and gotten through?
I haven't, but I think that's a great idea, Carol. (Duh, huh!) I used the redial on my phone, but it's steadily busy at the moment. Should be easier as the night wears on.
I've been trying almost since the beginning. It stays busy...
I tried for two hours Carol with no answer. I ended up texting my donation in. Rob looked great. The beard looked good.
I ended up giving online, too. Wonder if any of the ladies here got through?
Thank You Mrs. Cope once again you have proven what a special person you are........
Donna, I just love you. You know what they say: It takes one to know one.
Mrs. Cope is amazing for sure. I gave through the Red Cross. I watched every minute of the Hope for Haiti broadcast and plan to buy the music from I-tunes which is donating 100% of the proceeds to the cause.
Wasn't he adorable????
I gotta say, I'm loving' the beard! But I like facial hair anyway...
