In a ZDF charity show tonight Michael Schuhmacher's manager announced that the F1 world champion donated 10 Million US dollars for the ZDF aid initiative in favour of the victims of the Tsunami disaster. This must be the highest individual donation and makes the big companies look cheap.

In the same show the German WWRY musical cast donated 150 000 euros - well done, guys.

Nice one. Ofcourse he earns 80 million on a yearly basis, but still more generous than most countries have been so far. Think I might cheer for him next year. :)

The Canadian government is going to match every dollar donated by our population... I pray it is more than that 10 million!

Bill already gave half of his money to a charity organizations, but he has still enough to donate I think.

I think more celebrities should follow suit, rather than us poorer people digging into out pockets all the time.

Good on you, Michael.

It's all relative. As long as you can buy new cars, pay for the internet, buy cd's/computergames/DVD's, etc., you've got excess money and can spare a few Pounds, Euro's, Dollars. But that's the communist in me talking. ;)

Ofcourse we all give what we can miss. Wether that's €5,= or like Michael €10 million.

I'm actually proud that our government is doing that!

My school's student union (which I'm part of, btw.) is raising money through cash donations from students, teachers and staff to donate to the Canadian Red Cross. Our goal is to raise $1500 CDN (roughly $1225 US), which is a lot to us (and that would be if EVERY student and staff donated just $1 each too!).
My good friend Michael donated $5 towards this fundraiser today.

I helped out with getting the fundraising campaign ready; I handwritten names on 66 envelopes and stapled them each afterwards with the letters of appeal (I was also going to type up the letter that went with them, but the person I was helping did that for me) - all this done yesterday!

Unfortunately, having lost my job just recently, I'm unfortunately not able to contribute towards the funds (even though I DID suggest to Student Union that our upcoming Battle Of The Bands competition should raise money towards this cause; they said no to the idea)

Bill Gates donations to various charities:

$1 billion over 20 years to establish the Gates Millennium Scholarship Program, which will support promising minority students through college and some kinds of graduate school.
$750 million over five years to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, which includes the World Health Organization, the Rockefeller Foundation, Unicef, pharmaceutical companies and the World Bank.
$350 million over three years to teachers, administrators, school districts and schools to improve America’s K-12 education, starting in Washington State.
$200 million to the Gates Library Program, which is wiring public libraries in America’s poorest communities in an effort to close the “digital divide.”
$100 million to the Gates Children’s Vaccine Program, which will accelerate delivery of lifesaving vaccines to children in the poorest countries of the world.
$50 million to the Maternal Mortality Reduction Program, run by the Columbia University School of Public Health.
$50 million to the Malaria Vaccine Initiative, to conduct research on promising candidates for a malaria vaccine.
$50 million to an international group called the Alliance for the Prevention of Cervical Cancer.
$50 million to a fund for global polio eradication, led by the World Health Organization, Unicef, Rotary International and the U.N. Foundation.
$40 million to the International Vaccine Institute, a research program based in Seoul, South Korea.
$28 million to Unicef for the elimination of maternal and neonatal tetanus.
$25 million to the Sequella Global Tuberculosis Foundation.
$25 million to the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, which is creating coalitions of research scientists, pharmaceutical companies and governments in developing countries to look for a safe, effective, widely accessible vaccine against AIDS.
