Nicole Kidman Gives Big to Haiti Relief

Pitching in on the relief efforts, Nicole Kidman is the latest celebrity to pull out their pocketbook for Haiti.

Reports tell that the “Eyes Wide Shut” actress coughed up $250,000 in total after pledging $50,000-a-year over the next five years to the Caribbean island nation.

Joining Nicole in the Haiti relief efforts are her “Nine” costar Penelope Cruz and her partner Javier Bardem - as both matched Nicole’s generosity with $250,000 donations.

The hefty pledges were made during a recent fund-raising party held by filmmaker Paul Haggis, who happens to be the founder of the Artists for Peace and Justice’s Haiti relief fund.
