 Haiti Relief Fund Welcomes $1 Million From DiCaprio
'Titanic' star Leonardo DiCaprio and climate change activist's generous gesture of donating 1 million dollars to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund to help with the earthquake relief has drawn widespread appreciation.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Fund will disburse the money to support near-term assistance and long-term recovery efforts after the devastating earthquake.

"I salute Leonardo DiCaprio for his extraordinary generosity," People magazine quoted former President George W. Bush as saying in a statement.

"This donation sends a clear message to the people of Haiti that America's commitment to helping rebuild their country is strong.

"I thank Leo for setting a wonderful example for all Americans of helping a neighbour in need," he added.
