George Clooney plans on hosting a fundraising telethon to support the earthquake relief in Haiti. It will air on MTV and all of MTV’s channels Friday, January 22nd.

George is trying to get as many of his celeb friends as he can to participate with him and make appearances. Some of these may include Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie among many others. One act is confirmed though—when George asked Sting to perform he replied simply, “Where do I go?”

Sting and George both take frequent ski trips to Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy, so we assumed that’s where their meeting took place. Actually, George asked Sting at the Monkey Bar in Los Angeles during a party for George’s “Up in the Air”. The two are buddies though, and no doubt they’ve shared some epic runs up in Cortina.

Tune into the telethon on the 22nd and if you can, throw some support to the poor folks in Haiti.
