The Artists for Peace and Justice organisation, which has Ben Stiller, moviemaker Paul Haggis and Olivia Wilde on the board of directors, has helped raise funds for the nation in the wake of last year's (10) disaster.

Volunteers have worked tirelessly to build a school in Haiti, and the charity bosses donated a trip to the site as part of a fundraiser in Los Angeles on Thursday (13Jan11).

Producer Ryan Kavanaugh teamed up with organisers to offer a flight on his plane to anyone who bid $25,000 for the trip - and the elite audience flocked to win the prize.

Five people offered up the cash for the trip, including Jovovich and Osbourne, reports the New York Daily News.

Haggis was also honoured for his dedicated work for the organisation at the benefit.
