He isn't the only star to donate. On Wednesday, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gave $1 million to Doctors Without Borders for the organization's emergency medical operations in Haiti.

Paris Hilton, Ben Stiller, Lindsay Lohan and Adam Lambert have also urged support for the earthquake survivors through posts on their Twitter pages. Additionally, Oprah Winfrey began her talk show Wednesday by asking viewers to donate.
