Hollywood finally banded together last night to do their part to raise money for the oil spill disaster that's ravaged the Gulf Coast. The CNN telethon called "Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help" aired last night, and celebs helped bring in much-needed aid. As Ryan Seacrest reported today, "Final numbers from @kingsthings 1.8 million raised last night for people & animals needing help now! This is going to those who cannot wait." Meanwhile, Ian Somerhalder, who also appeared, showed his gratitude by tweeting, "I'm humbled by and grateful for all of the support yesterday for our Gulf. The people of the Gulf and especially the people of Grand Isle," later adding, "Want to say thank you around the world and at home. It means so much you have no idea..."
There was an even more staggering figure floating around the Twitterverse, which was just how many followers Demi Lovato has acquired. Demi excitedly posted, "OMG 2,000,000 FOLLOWERS?!?!! I JUST SAW THIS!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS SO MUCH!!!! :D BEST way to start my day!!!! #myfansareTHEBEST."Now, if only all of Demi's followers could donate to the oil disaster, too!
