John Travolta Flies Aid To Haiti

John Travolta has arranged a plane to fly aid to the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

The actor - who is a qualified pilot - acted quickly to organise the help for the Caribbean country which was devastated by the natural disaster last Tuesday (12.01.10), and hopes others will follow his example.

He said: "I have arranged for a plane to take down some volunteer ministers and some supplies and some medics.

"I hope that inspires others as well. It's needed."

Travolta is one of many A-list stars who are helping Haiti.

George Clooney has organised the 'Hope For Haiti' TV fundraising event and has convinced Bono, Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys to all perform.

Joining the trio of musicians are a further 40 celebrities who will take part in the event - which will be aired on over a dozen US TV networks and will be co-hosted by Clooney and Wyclef Jean, who was born in Haitian city Croix-des-Bouquets - on January 22.

Clooney attended the Golden Globe awards last night (18.01.10) and revealed he was recruiting more Hollywood stars to take part.

The 48-year-old star - who was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama award for his role in 'Up In The Air' - said: "This is a perfect place for me to go recruiting some people, so it works out."

Penelope Cruz spoke about the Haiti earthquake - which left tens of thousands of people dead and injured - at the ceremony, saying: "Everybody can use this as an opportunity to remind people to do something. Even if it's a little help. But everything counts."
