John Mayer Gives $500,000 To Haiti – But WHY Does He Need To Tell Us?

John Mayer has become the latest celebrity to dig deep for the survivors of the Haiti earthquake – the rocker has donated $500,000 (£312,500) to the American Red Cross.

The generous star has also given charity bosses permission to use The Heart of Life – the song he performed on CNN TV special Haiti: How You Can Help – in a new public service announcement.

This latest donation has seen Mayer join the likes of George Clooney, Gisele Bundchen, Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have all given huge cash sums to the relief effort, but what I want to know is, why do they feel the need to make their donation known?

I know it’s a terrible crisis, and everyone I know has given something to the cause, but we haven’t felt the need to go and alert the local press about our donation? It’s all well and good giving to charity because you care, but it’s another thing expecting publicity off the back of it.

On that note, I’d like to thank all the celebrities and people who have given to Haiti and not broadcast it to anyone willing to listen, you’re making a difference and you know it.
