Help donate for Chinese Earthquake relief (all set!)


Note: Our goal has been met so there is no need to comment. Thanks so much for your support.


We will give $10 per comment on this post, up to $1000, to Chinese Earthquake Relief through GlobalGiving.com.

This is in response to the massive outcry against Sharon Stone’s outrageous comment that the devastating earthquake in China, in which 67,000 people are confirmed dead and thousands more missing, was somehow karma against their government. Other commenters, who are very much in the minority, have expressed similar ignorant sentiments that are in no way a reflection of the feelings of the American people or of this website.

Rather than give any more credence to that nonsense, we want to help out any way we can. Please help us donate to Chinese disaster relief by commenting on this post.

You can also make your own donation at GlobalGiving.com.

Update: We are donating to the “Half the Sky Children’s Relief Fund” through GlobalGiving.com. The Half The Sky Children’s Relief Fund website has photos and a blog chronicling of their efforts. They recently visited a primary school that collapsed in which 241 out of 500 children perished.

Update 2: Goal Met! Thanks everyone for commenting! We have donated $1,000, which again will go to Half The Sky Children’s Relief Fund through Global Giving. You can thank Sharon Stone for being such a tool and everyone who defended her or somehow tried to justify her statement.

You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed.

    Done.

  2. jenn says:

    My prayers are with everyone dealing with the aftermath. Thanks Celebitchy

  3. Kimmy says:

    The Chinese people didn’t deserve this. Their messed up government isn’t the fault of most of them, including the thousands dead and suffering.

    We’re all human, and this is an incredible gesture on Celebitchy’s behalf.

    Here’s my $10.

  4. Hotarubi says:

    Comment on board!

  5. Kerry says:

    So sad.

  6. Alexis says:

    Someone who understands what Karma is would never say something like that.

  7. SeVen says:

    1) Sharon Stone is a twaffle.

    2) This is my comment. I wish nothing but good things for those poor people. No one should have to go through these things.

  8. journey says:

    wonderful. a beautiful idea.

  9. Luli says:

    Done.

  10. Blanche says:

    Twaffle is a very nice word for what she is, SeVen.

  11. Debsa says:

    Done.

  12. SAL says:

    Done

  13. Enonymouse says:

    I really hope the get the help they need. Again, celebitchy, NO ONE in the previous blog was insensitive to the victims, is because we (I am sure is the same for Scott F and others) sympathize for them that we criticized the Chinese government for not doing much more to help these innocent people. They deserve much more help and care then they are getting now.

    However, Well done for the effort CB. Every little helps.

  14. Cat says:

    Karma

  15. Celebitchy says:

    Let me say, and this comment counts toward the 100, that when people argue here about things that are so upsetting and real, i.e. tens of thousands of people dying, and act like there is any other side to this than people dying and suffering and losing family members, I cannot sit and concentrate on the gossip or post photos, or talk about such bullshit entertainment. :cry:

    By doing this I can move on to the gossip and know that at least we’re doing something.

  16. MissMara says:

    I have a lot of respect for the way you deal with this issue, CB. And here I’ll say AMEN to your post on the Sharon Stone-topic. Keep up the good work.

  17. xav says:

    here’s my comment..done

  18. lena says:

    I truly the hope they get the help that they need, they are in my prayers and in my thoughts..thanks Celebitchy

  19. chunkin says:

    sharon is such an idiot

  20. isobel says:

    My heart goes out to all of the lost children of China.

  21. rose says:

    Blaming the government or calling this tragedy “karma” is not going to ease the hearts of all those parents in China who lost their children.

    Thank you CB for your beautiful gesture.

  22. BecauseIsayso! says:

    Thank you CB!

  23. Sara says:

    Here I go.

  24. Plumeria says:

    Thank you, CB.

  25. texasmom says:

    Thanks, CB!

  26. Susan says:

    Sharon Stone is an idiot. Thanks for showing that blogs do good.

  27. GirlyGirl says:

    My heart goes out to them.

  28. elisha says:

    If only Myanmar wasn’t too proud to accept help as well.

  29. lady garden says:

    commenting!

  30. geronimo says:

    Respect for this, CB. And I 100% agree with your sentiments. Kudos for turning something negative and upsetting into compassionate and positive action. Well done you.

  31. KRIS says:

    Karma will bite Sharon.

  32. darkfaith says:

    this is very nice of you to do :-)

  33. tory says:

    God forbid anyone who would call this karma (Sharon Stone) should ever lose their child or children in such a disaster — would it be a karma then, or a tradgedy? My thoughts and prayers are with those suffering — as a mother of two, I can’t begin to imagine…..

  34. LDB says:

    If Sharon Stone is a believer in Karma, maybe she should be concerned about her own fate based on all of the negative energy her irresponsible comment has created.

    Thanks Celebitchy for your generosity.

  35. doubleindemnity says:

    Thanks for doing this!

  36. Cat says:

    AOL has a phone conversation between Nick Hogan and Hulk Hogan, recorded while Nick is in jail, where they essentially say John Grazianos negative attitude is the reason that John is in a permanent vegetative state. You may think the reason he is in a coma is because Nick Hogan had a few beers and raced his car down the street and smashed into a telephone poll, but no, it was because John sometimes yelled at people.

  39. AC says:

    Done and done :) Wonderful idea. My thoughts and prayers go out to those affected.

    Thank you, Celebitchy team!

  47. Allie says:

    This is a lovely idea.

  48. teap says:

    thank you for doing this. what a great idea.

  49. Jami says:

    Yay, helping!
    thanks for the chance to give a little assistance.

  50. Ramona Stan says:

    done

  51. $10 post says:

    More sites should use this system.

  52. francesca says:

    done.Nice idea!

  53. Leila says:

    Here’s to your good karma for this donation! Well played!

  54. Whelkin says:

  56. MonicaBee says:

    I’m in.

    Nice work, CB.

  57. maxi_mumm says:

    good on ya.

  58. Ling says:

    $10… ka-ching.
    It’s funny, you’re the only blog that sticks the word “bichy” right into the URL, but you’re probably the least bitchy.

    Fantastic system. I’ll click on a few banners for you.

  59. Annie says:

    What could be a worthier cause, and an easier way to help?

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.

  60. Livia says:

    Fantastic idea. Done.

  61. Telluhna says:

    Thank you for doing this.

  62. Mary Ann says:

    Thank you for doing this. I was sickened and heartbroken by some of the ignorant responses on the other thread. There is an epidemic of selfishness and hatred right now here in America– and it really makes my day to see you standing firm against it.

    I spent two months travelling through mainland China a few years ago, and the Chinese and Tibetan people are wonderful– kind, generous, and funny, with a few bad apples, just like people here in the States. They don’t deserve this tragedy any more than you or I do.

  63. nom de plume says:

    I’ll tell a quick story about someone I met in Chengdu (100 km from the epicentre) just a few weeks ago. His name was Tembo (that may be spelled wrong) and he was a local tour guide. He grew up in Tibet where his father was a farmer. He had studied in the United States and knew five languages. He was really energetic and is the only person I’ve ever met who has exactly the same mannerisms as my brother. I will never know if he survived the quake or not but he is just one of the people who may be helped with donations. Thanks CB!

  64. lovelylady says:

    this is literally the least I could do to help.

    kudos, celebitchy :)

  65. Julie says:

    This is a great thing you guys are doing….

  66. The Old KC says:

    I can’t believe Sharon Stone said that. My prayers and thoughts are with everyone affected. Thanks Celebitchy.

  67. cc says:

    I knew there was a reason I loved this site. Good job you guys!!!!

  68. Codzilla says:

    Count me in! Outstanding idea, CB.

  69. V. says:

    Thank you for doing this.

  70. Jen says:

    This is awesome. Thanks, CB!

  71. Roma says:

    This is fantastic; I’ve also made a donation.

  72. photo jojo says:

    :) Rock on.

  73. me says:

    comment

  74. jane says:

    This just makes me so sad. Two NPR correspondents were about 60 mi away from the epicenter reporting on unrelated subjects at the time of the quake, so they were able to deliver first hand news about the devastation. When the lady started talking about the children’s bodies being laid out for ID by the parents, I started crying in my car just imagining that despair. My heart goes out to these people. Sharon Stone….well, some people should never speak.

  75. sassymommy says:

    Awesome! Sharon Stone can suck it.

  76. Syko says:

    Throw another $10 in the pot.

  77. Lex says:

    Wishes & Prayers for Sichuan.

  78. Cari says:

    I think this is one of the better and most fairest gossip sites I’ve ever seen.

    Great job CB!

    :mrgreen:

  79. lyn says:

    I really believe this tragedy was only matter of mother nature…

    perhaps karma….but if this was karma…then why all the world keeps going on existing?..

  80. Jess says:

    Thanks for helping out, you guys are the best! :D

  81. mireya says:

    great idea!

  82. Michelle says:

    Very decent of you to do this.

  83. melanie says:

    really wish ppl would stop passing judgement whenever a tragedy happens. if karma is true, then she may get what she deserves for dishing that out..

  84. Danielle says:

    This is my comment. I hope they find the peace they need soon.

  85. Ron says:

    Happy to help!

  86. Anna says:

    That’s a great idea CB! I’m glad I can contribute in this small way. Sharon Stone is an idiot. I completely disagree with the Chinese government in almost every area, but that doesn’t mean these aren’t real people suffering real tragedies who need real help. And we can’t let political, religious or other differences come into the way of helping fellow human beings.

    Thank you for making it so easy for us to help out!

  87. shay says:

    All those backpacks are just heartbreaking!

  88. Jez says:

    you guys are awesome!

    Thanks CB!

  94. Annie says:

    My prayers go with them.

  95. Carrie says:

    I hope everyone who is suffering gets as much help as possible!

  96. breederina says:

    Thanks Team CB ! Well done.

  97. gblinda says:

    i don’t know how karma would affect the poor people of china. sharon stone is an idiot and should now put her money out there herself to help them.

  98. shilu says:

    My Comment.

  99. Bodhi says:

    Jane- I cried my ass off too. That story was heartbreaking.

    Here’s another $10!

  100. anni says:

    i´ve been to china and it is a beautiful country with the most endearing people i ever met (politics aside, i don´t agree with that at all)

    great idea CB and crew

  101. Christina says:

    Thank you for helping!

  102. Devilgirl says:

    Great thing that you are doing!

  103. Toni says:

    Sharon Stone is beyond stupid. This is a natural disaster and all people deserve to be cared for. Thank you.

  104. Gini says:

    Nice idea.

  105. ava verhaal says:

    Helping China

  106. TC says:

    Thank you for caring!

  107. curegirl0421 says:

    You’ve reached 100 already but I still wanted to say thanks for doing this… Sharon Stone is a stupid twat.

  108. TC says:

    Sorry, again.

  109. bc says:

    coolies!!!! awesome idea!!

  110. Kirsten says:

    am I too late? :)

  111. jess says:

    it’s ridiculous how ignorant some people can be. let alone people in the public eye’s radar. get educated!

  112. Alina says:

    Congratulations for the idea and the donation. I can’t believe Sharon Stone would say that; she should have made a donation or something to the poor people who have lost their family and their houses. Shame on her!

  113. Jenna says:

    Thanks for taking a stand!

  114. Adele says:

    Good for you guys!

  115. Amanda says:

    hope this helps <3

  116. J NY says:

    God Bless

  117. Kay says:

    What Sharon Stone said in her interview was absolutely appalling. She had absolutely no right to say what she did, and instead of sounding like she was intune with what is happening in China right now, she sounded completely ignorant. The earthquake was not about politics. It seemed like she hardly had a grasp of what Karma means. Whatever the Chinese Government are doing to the Tibetans does not reflect the Chinese people. Sharon Stone was completely out of line.

    And what you guys are doing here is amazing! Hope this helps.

  118. Sara says:

    Great idea, great job, I feel good commenting here and helping you contribute. STUF, Sharon Stone, you know nothing about the world, and you have no heart, soul or compassion if you can’t overlook the troubles in a country’s government in order to say and do kind and needed things to the people suffering this incredible tragedy.

  119. hello says:

    my comment!

  120. jenqu says:

    thank you for doing this.

  121. sls0413 says:

    Wow she is an idiot. Good idea guys!

  122. k says:

    thanks for doing this. karma played no role in this. the wrath of other nature is unthinkable at times.

  123. Raquel says:

    Glad to help!

  124. Thank you for doing such a great thing! I also blogged about this story and decided to try and do my part also.

    I can only do $1 per post but I think it will help a little.

    Thank you for the great idea!

  125. Alison says:

    Sharon Stone should really take back and apologize for what she had said. It was very ignorant and if she didn’t want to show sympathy for the 60,000 innocent lives lost, she doesn’t have to, but she should -NOT- have said it was ‘karma’. It wasn’t, it was an earthquake, no one wants it to happen.

    Thank you so much for doing this, god bless all the orphans and everyone who died in the earthquake.

  126. T. Leeflang says:

    Commenting. Sharon needs a big fat karma up the backside.

  133. Lindsey says:

    sharon needs to watch what she says

  134. Diamonds says:

    So incredibly insensitive of her! Who does she think she is?!

  135. Busty St.Clair says:

    Sharon Stone can kiss my ass.

  136. CB Rawks says:

    You’re awesome, CB.

  137. emj says:

  149. laura says:

    I FEEL VERY SAD ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED AND THE PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT THIS DISASTER IS BECAUSE OF THE KARMA IS CAUSE FIRSTY THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH BRAIN AND SECONDLY CAUSE THEY ARE SELFILSH ENOUGH TO ONLY THINK ABOUT THEM

  150. cassie says:

    Sharon stone is slow, I like her but that comment was completly unecessary she needs 2 learn when 2 keep her mouth shut. She should have known better considering all that tom cruise drama.

  151. lea says:

    Karma Is Sharon Stone being blacklisted for being such a dumbass. Not that BI 2 didn’t already kill her career.

  152. corianne says:

  156. Sleepy says:

    I know you already made your goal but I wanted to comment anyway!

  157. hillary says:

    i second this.

  158. Colette Berry says:

    Here’s my comment.
    Stone’s comments were ludicrous and absolutely revolting considering the human scope of the disaster.

  159. JJ says:

    They definetely need all the help they can get right now

  160. KC says:

    That dumb bitch, who’s she to talk about things like these?

    Help the people in need!!!!

    karma will soon hit her for her stupid opinion.
