Celebrity Telethon Raises $1.8 Million For Oil Spill Clean Up

altLast night, Larry King hosted a celebrity telethon on CNN to raise funds for the victims of the Gulf oil spill. The star-studded event managed to rake in $1.8 million, thanks in part to teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, Jenny McCarthy, Sting and more, who took calls from viewers looking to make donations of all sizes.

To take a line from Bieber, “there’s no such thing as being too young to pitch in.” If you’re feeling inspired, look into what you can do to help. And if you haven’t already checked out this infographic, take a peak at the impact of voluntourism.
