If you're looking to watch "Hope for Haiti Now: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief" on Friday night, you won't have any trouble finding it.

The two-hour, star-studded telethon is set to be one of the most widely distributed prime-time televised benefits in history, appearing simultaneously on more than 25 networks - including CNN, where Anderson Cooper will report live from Haiti during the event.

Other networks airing "Hope for Haiti" include ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, BET, The CW, HBO, MTV, VH1 and CMT. The show will even air on the Discovery's eco-lifestyle television network, Planet Green.

MTV is presenting the benefit, which will be helmed by Oscar-winning actor George Clooney in Los Angeles, California, and musician Wyclef Jean from New York. CNN's Anderson Cooper will report live from Haiti.

    I wish that someone on the show tonight could please tell the World to stop collecting donated clothes to be sent to Haiti "The Second Disaster". Everyone will be watching and when Anderson Cooper speaks, people listen.

    There is a solution to this, and is the best thing to send anywhere – Outfit to Go. American Red Cross Chapters use them.

    If people could just find out what will happen to their donated clothes once they are shipped over there, maybe this would stop. There is a stats page at the website -outfittogo.org and click on Did You Know. If not just look at the slideshow on the home page. No One Deserves our Leftovers.
