Tyler Perry Donates a Generous $1 Million to Haiti Relief Effort

Published February 4, 2010

Movie producer Tyler Perry is dropping his second million on a  worthy cause within months.

In November, the movie mogul donated $1 M to the NAACP.

This time around, his charity is directed to Haiti.

 “I have raised my personal donation from $250,000 to $1 million. I did this realizing that after the next big story comes along, the news media will pack up and leave the people of Haiti to fend for themselves. They always do,” he wrote on his Web site.

Other million-dollar celebrity contributors to Haiti include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; George Clooney; and Sandra Bullock.

Perry says he hopes to follow his donation with a trip to the island nation.
