The Sun Donates Over ¬£370ꯠ To UNICEF's Haiti Fund

Back in January Robbie hit the studio to record his part for the Everybody Hurts single, recorded and released to raise funds for UNICEF's work in Haiti following the tragic earthquake that hit the country at the beginning of the year.
This week The Sun announced that it will donate half of the money from the the REM cover, which featured a whole host of superstars, including Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey, Gary Barlow and Westlife to name a few, to UNICEF… that's a whopping £370ꯠ!

Thanks to all of you who contributed by buying Everybody Hurts and supporting UNICEF and the children of Haiti. This amazing donation means that enough money has been raised to buy 12귔 'school in a carton' kits that would reach 500ꯠ children, costing £275000. On top of that, a further £100ꯠ could buy 90 huge 72m squared tents - that would enable 72 000 children to have somewhere to go to school.

If you haven't bought the single yet you can grab it from iTunes here.
