dra Bullock has donated $1 million to the Red Cross for Japan disaster relief, her rep confirms to Scoop. While other celebrities have made various gestures to encourage donation and raise money, this is the largest known donation made by a celebrity since the 9.0 magnitude earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis.
This isn't the first time that Bullock has risen to the occasion charitably. She was honored for her contributions in rebuilding a New Orleans public school after Hurricane Katrina and last year donated $1 million for earthquake victims in Haiti.
Now there is someone putting their money where their mouth is. I can respect that.
That is really great. Will buy a lot of blankets and medicine and water and transportation.
Bless her for her generosity.
Sandra, charity begins at home.
God bless her. I have always liked Sandra Bullock.
I might not agree with a lot of her personal views, but the lady is a lady—and time-and-again, she does these types of things.
I have always liked her... Wonderful
Nice to see. It will do some real good.
Beauty isn’t always skin deep. This lady has inner beauty.
Excuse me for adding this to the Post, but isn’t Pelosi one of the richest women in this country? Where is her donation. Where is Hanoi Jane’s.
As Jesus sat facing the temple offering box, he watched how much money people put into it. Many rich people put in large amounts. A poor widow dropped in two small coins, worth less than a cent.
He called his disciples and said to them, I can guarantee this truth: This poor widow has given more than all the others. All of them have given what they could spare. But she, in her poverty, has given everything she had to live on.
I don’t see eye to eye with her on many things, but she is a class act and walks the walk while almost all of her peers just talk.
And thank you Sandra!

“Now there is someone putting their money where their mouth is. I can respect that.”
I love this women. I love her.....my wife is lucky I met her first.....lol. Seriously she is absolutely incredible. She gave a million to 9/11, a million to New Orleans, and a million to Japan....she may have given to Thailand but not sure. She is so awesome and probably a lib but the great thing is.....nobody knows what her political affiliation is and that is how it should be for all actors and actresses. DON’T ASK/DON’T TELL your political affiliation. lol.
Good for her! If you have it use it for good.
She does plenty at “home” too. This is a classy lady.
She donates to a lot of charities and causes. I don’t agree with some of them, but it’s her money and she is very generous with it.
Pelosi one of the richest women in this country?
Which still goes to show you money can’t buy you brains.
And, yes, where’s the money, Pelosi? After all, your friend Michael Moore says it doesn’t belong to you anyway so cough it up!
i think she donated 1 mil. to haiti also- she must have plenty money
I love this woman.
Wow and double wow.
And it is not the first time Sandra has been so generous.
To go even further off the topic, but I wonder how this (apparently*) Jewish woman could have ever been married to a neo-Nazi.
* I saw apparently, in that she has never expressed her religious views, but gave her adopted child a real bris, with a mohel, the whole deal, sealing him to the Mt. Sinai covenant. A mohel would be unlikely to do this for a non-Jewish mother.
Good for her! Too many celebrities just show up at a fundraiser, and expect their presence to be their own donation.
Paging Michael Moore.
What are they doing to get us out of debt without punishing us with more?
It is, in the END their policies that have taken to this brink.
The least they could do is lead by example and give PERSONNALLY to the crisis and need in Japan.
After all-they use our money with abandon when they are supposed to be STEWARDS of the money they take from money each of us work to earn.
What is wrong with these people. I agree.
Where are Pelosi and Kerry and Blumenthal and 'Rockefeller' and other wealthy elected officials on their giving to Japan. Is it because there is no tax deduction involved that they hang tight to their own cash?
She deviates from true Liberalism (Socialism) in that she gives her own money, not O.P. (other peoples’s).
“Which still goes to show you money cant buy you brains.”
She married the money.
I love Sandra Bullock—she’s not only a very enjoyable actress, she’s also a patriot.
Well done, Sandra.
Sandra Bullock is one of my favorite actresses. She's done such a range of parts, and I like both the dramatic and comedic ones. We watched part of Demolition Man, last night, and she's so funny in it.
Id respect it even more if she did not issue a press release
Many millions will be donated by persons whose names no one will never know.
If you have the means and desire, then you give.
The only reason to make it public it is to encourage others to do it, too.
Let’s see if she causes anyone else to step up to the plate.
Ditto that - Sandra is one special lady!
Where is Michael Moore???
A wonderful woman.
For the amount to be known to her contemporaries she has set the bar for donation amounts.
“Where is Michael Moore???”
He belly flopped 20 miles south east of the reactors and caused this whole problem in the first place.
It’s her money, she can do with it as she pleases.....
I'll second that!
Sandra Bullock doesn’t give money for public admiration. She does it consistently. Her wealth is no reason to scoff at the donation.
Red Cross? What percentage overhead, promotion, PR?
But she did also marry into money.
I’m sure that million to Haiti went down the usual rat holes. You can’t help Haiti.
Think of what that two million could have done for her own people in her own country.
Sandra Bullock is a left wing athiest.
They had to practically BEG her to be in ‘The Blind Side’
because the woman whom she was to portray was a Christian.
Bullock objected to playing a Christian:
