"Extra" has obtained new details about George Clooney's telethon to raise funds for victims of the Haiti earthquake.
"Hope for Haiti" is in the process of being put together now, and will feature the Oscar winner's famous friends in the entertainment industry. The bi-coastal telethon will be broadcast worldwide on January 22, on MTV channels around the world as well as ABC, NBC, HBO and CNN. The live show will air at 8 PM EST.
All proceeds from the telethon will go toward relief efforts in Port-au-Prince.
Not On Our Watch, an advertising and grantmaking organization founded by Clooney, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, producer Jerry Weintraub, and human rights lawyer David Pressman, has donated $1 million to relief efforts. "The people of Haiti are in desperate need of help. Our organization, Not On Our Watch, will do whatever it can and we know the international community will as well."
Clooney isn't the only celebrity with a creative plan to help Haiti -- Mark Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom Delonge of Blink-182 have released an Haiti Charity t-shirt, being sold exclusively on the band's website.
Each shirt costs $15, and proceeds will go to the Red Cross. To pick up a relief tee, visit the band's merchandise site here.

During a Blink-182 concert last night, Mark Hoppus struggled as he opened up to the audience about losing his "dear friend" DJ AM, and asked to observe a moment of silence for the late musician. During that period of time, band members Hoppus, Travis Barker and Tom Delonge couldn't hold back their tears over the loss of their friend.
Nearly five months after Travis Barker suffered serious burns in a fatal LearJet crash, the rocker admits to "Extra" that he left the hospital before he was ready.
"I kind of rushed out of the hospital and my hand was numb, but I didn't tell anybody," Barker explained. "I just wanted to get out. The numbness didn't go away. It was like in four or five of my fingers. I really wanted to fix it as soon as possible. I had bad nerve damage, so I just got surgery. I have eight to ten weeks to recover."
Barker reunited with his former band Blink 182 and presented at the Grammy Awards last night -- and revealed that the popular pop rock band is together again!
Bandmate Tom Delonge opened up to "Extra" about the reunion, saying, "When you're in a band, you have this unspoken bond. You're kind of family with your boys. We took a break for a little bit. I think when Travis had the event happen to him it was something that pulled us back together... we always knew it was inevitable."
Blink-182 confirmed their rumored reunion at the Grammys, and that they're working on a new album. Tom DeLonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker talk about what reunited them.
The band released the following statement, "This past week there've been a lot of questions about the current status of the band, and we wanted you to hear it straight from us. To put it simply, we're back. We mean, really back. Picking up where we left off and then some. In the studio writing and recording a new album. Preparing to tour the world yet again. Friendships reformed. 17 years deep in our legacy. "
