Willis aids SAG strike fund

$100,000 donation helps actors hurt by walkout

Bruce Willis has become the latest star to aid his fellow actors with a $100,000 donation to the Screen Actors Guild’s strike relief fund, a day after negotiations with advertisers collapsed.

“The point of my contribution is simple,” Willis said. “It’s my point of solidarity with my union.”

The gift to the fund, which helps actors whose financial resources have been strained by the five-month strike against advertisers, comes on the heels of similar donations by Harrison Ford, Helen Hunt and Kevin Spacey, and a $200,000 gift from Nicolas Cage. The fund, which was endowed with $500,000 from SAG in August, has also received major contributions from George Clooney, Jay Leno, ‘N Sync and Britney Spears.

“We have been extremely blessed by the generosity from our colleagues at every level in the industry,” foundation exec director Marcia Smith said. “Mr. Willis’ donation to the fund underlines the resolve of every member of our union.”
