Hilfiger Hands Over A Fortune To Hurricane Victims

Fashion mogul TOMMY HILFIGER showed off his generous side on Friday night (09SEP05) when he donated cash, clothes and the BLACK EYED PEAS to a US telethon held to raise cash for the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.

Hilfiger received a last-minute call from pal RUSSELL SIMMONS, asking him to help him spread the word at his BET SAVE OURSELVES TV benefit and the style king went out of his way to help.

He dashed from the end of his New York Fashion Week show with Black Eyed Peas, who he hired for the event, and $350,000 (GBP194,400) in Hilfiger clothes. Big-hearted Hilfiger has already donated $2 million in clothes and cash to the victims of the hurricane in south east America.

He wasn't the only big spender on the night - BET bosses and executives at the cable network's parent company Viacom donated $3 million (GBP1.7 million) to the cause, SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS and JAY-Z used the telethon to join forces and donate $1 million (GBP555,000) to the American Red Cross, and rapper LIL' JON donated $250,000 (GBP138,900).
