Sandra Bullock and son Louis

Sandra Bullock took some rare time out to take her young son Louis to the park recently. The academy award winning actress who recently donated $1 million to the people of Japan via the American Red Cross, in the wake of the recent terrible earthquake and tsunami, looked incredibly happy and relaxed while taking a break from the set of her latest film, which is based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

Sandra is one of a long list of American celebrities who have pledged money to help. Included is Gwen Stafani who also donated $1 million, Lady Gaga who has raised at least $250,000, Jack Johnson, Justin Bieber, Clint Eastwood, Jackie Chan, Boyz II Men and even troubled actor Charlie Sheen has pledged his support. Disney has donated a considerable amount and has also promised to match anyone in their organisation’s contributions up to a further $1 million. Concerts are being organised, songs are being recorded, merchandise is being sold, all in the name of raising a sizable amount of money for the Japanese relief effort.
