UPDATED: American Idol Charity Donations Top $70 Million Written by geri Tuesday, 01 May 2007 The American Idol charity telethon called "Idol Gives Back" netted more than $60 million (*) for impoverished children in Africa and America -- as well as for Boys and Girls Clubs that keep kids safe and out of trouble after school. Five million dollars was pledged by Fox parent company, NewsCorp, $100,000 was donated by one of the co-stars of the night, Ellen DeGeneres, and 70,000 people joined One.org to help eradicate poverty after a plea on the show from U2's Bono. - AP (*) UPDATE: The fund topped $70 million, says Ryan Seacrest on the Ellen show today.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
