Shakira, Oprah Winfrey and Chris Martin have joined Ben Stiller, Jessica Alba, Brangelina and Wyclef Jean in calling for people to lend their support to those left homeless after the disaster.
Shakira has posted a message on her personal website asking everyone to donate cash to Wyclef's Yele charity organisation, while other stars including Mark Hoppus, Yoko Ono, singer Joey Mcintyre, and Kim Kardashian have all taken to their Twitter.com pages to raise awareness of the tragedy.
Oprah opened her talk show on Wednesday calling for viewers to donate to the Red Cross, saying, "This is a time where we, as a global nation, should come together and support those who are in need."
And Coldplay's Chris Martin is pressing for donations to Oxfam's Haiti appeal: "I visited Haiti with Oxfam a few years ago. It's a country of extreme poverty and brutal living conditions. Most people in Port-au-Prince live in tin shacks. The earthquake that has struck Haiti will have turned the city into an unimaginable hell."
Hollywood supercouple Brad and Angelina have also extended their efforts by donating £625,000 (R4.6 million) to help Doctors Without Borders in the earthquake-ravaged zone.
In a statement, Angie says, "It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades."
Brad adds, "We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care."
Wyclef Jean's campaign, which hopes to raise a million dollars a day for the island, has proved so popular, his crashed as a result of the number of donations being made every minute. A spokesperson revealed the organisation is working on improving the site to allow for more donations.
Wyclef, who spent Thursday clearing bodies for the streets of Port-au-Prince, has called for the government to impose a state of emergency. "We are calling for a state of emergency please President (Barack) Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton... we have to do something for this country."
