One of the commenters today on our Haiti telethon blog post made an interesting request: "I would like to see a list of all the Hollywood types who have contributed to this telethon and how much they contributed. Actions speak louder than words (or performances)."
Of course, as other posters noted, those performances were aimed at increasing donations, by getting more people to tune in to the telethon. In addition, many celebrities are donating their time to raising funds and awareness for the cause, such as Ben Stiller's fundraising through Save The Children for a school in Haiti. And, as unlikely as it may seem, some celebs may have contributed without putting out press releases.
Nevertheless, this sounded like a "Find The Good" challenge, so here's what I've been able to dig up. This list is by no means complete, or in any kind of order, but it should provide an idea of who's giving what.

Iconic movie star Judy Garland and iconic musician Elton John have been crowned the greatest gay icons of all time.
In an online poll of 5,000 gay men and women, survey service OnePoll.com found that the “Wizard of Oz” starlet and piano playing singer are tops in the gay community.
Queen front-man Freddie Mercury came in second on the male icon list and soccer star David Beckham (who is not gay) came in at number 10.
On the lady list Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Cher and Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli rounded out the top five.
