John Travolta Sends Plane to Aid Victims of Haiti
John Travolta is the latest celebrity to help aid those in need in Haiti following the tragic 7.0 earthquake that hit last Tuesday.

Travolta, who is a licensed pilot and owns his own plane, is lending his plane to Haiti for assistance.

"I have arranged for a plane to take down some volunteer ministers and some supplies and some medics," John tells ET. "My church has also arranged for 80 medicos and 33 volunteers to go down. I hope that inspires others as well," he adds. "It's needed."

And he's just one of many A-listers who have gone out of their way to extend help (and have open their bank accounts) to Haitians.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has donated $1.5 million dollars to help aid victims, Sandra Bullock donated $1 million dollars to 'Doctors Without Boarders' and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have also donated $1 million dollars to help rebuild Haiti.

George Clooney has organized a telethon, which will take place on January 22nd. Stars like Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Bono have already agreed to perform. Wyclef Jean will help George co-host the telethon in hopes of raising more money for victims.

“This is a perfect place for me to go recruiting some people, so it works out," Clooney joked yesterday at the Golden Globes.
