Star power and Haiti

February 4, 2010 - John D'Agostino
Don’t you just love Tinseltown?

Not only do they think their award shows — whether it be the Grammys or People's Choice Awards — are worth three to four hours of prime time television, but now those same stars are reminding us to give money for a worthy cause -- during a tough economic time.

Don’t forget about helping out Haiti.

Yes. Our actors or actresses, who made millions in one movie or our favorite musicians are making thousands each time they sing a song ... get all dressed up, arrive in limousines and flaunt their earnings at these award shows. But don't us, those who are only able to view the event on television — the everyday people — forget about helping the Haitians.

For the record, as of last week Chautauqua County residents had not forgotten about Haiti. According to the Red Cross, more than $37,000 had been donated through last week for relief efforts from this county.

That is a great deal of caring by this county. However, it is probably much less than what was spent for a night out by those celebrities — living in mansions nonetheless — reminding us not to forget about those less fortunate — in our country and overseas.
