Actor wants to help raise money for relief effort

George Clooney is organising a celebrity telethon in the wake of the Haiti earthquake.

The country was rocked by tremors measuring 7 on the Richter scale and now an emergency medical operation has been launched to help the victims.

George, 48, is believed to have signed up Sting and wife Trudie Styler for the charity show on 22 January, reports E! Online.

MTV has confirmed that the telethon will air on its channels.

Earlier this week, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donated $1million to Doctors Without Borders and Médecins Sans Frontiéres to help with the relief effort.
