Will Ferrell, David Spade donate to Pitt’s Make It Right campaignDecember 23rd, 2007 - 12:23 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Dec 23 (ANI): Will Ferrell and fellow actor David Spade are doing their bit for society by donating to Brad Pitts Make It Right campaign.
Pitt had started the campaign to help raise funds for victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Ferrell is said to have adopted one of the 150 houses that are being constructed by the campaign in the city’s Lower Ninth Ward district to house those left homeless in the area worst hit by the 2005 disaster.
“We’ve had 12,000 people across America come in and donate. We’ve had people like Will Ferrell come in and adopt a house, Contactmusic quoted Pitt, as saying.
Our initial goal was 150 houses, and we’ve got 52 houses that have been adopted, which means 52 families,” he added.
And the Ocean’s Eleven actor wants Americans to continue to donate as much as they can afford to the fundraising effort, which ends next month (Jan08).
“We got two more weeks to go. I need people out there to come in and adopt the other 100 homes. And hopefully by that time we’ll see this whole neighbourhood symbolically put back together,” he said. (ANI)
