Jackie Chan was in the recording studio yesterday to record a special song in honor of eight Chinese peacekeepers killed in the Haiti earthquake.

The action star/singer has recorded “To Welcome You Home” with pop star Tan Jing. The song was written by the same team who wrote Love Through Life and Death for victims of the Sichuan earthquake.

Actress Scarlett Johansson has also been busy organizing earthquake relief, and has launched an online charity auction to raise funds for Oxfam.

You and three guests have the chance to meet the actress backstage on the opening night of her new play, A View From The Bridge, on Sunday January 24, at Cory Theatre in New York City.

The auction runs until January 22, and can be accessed here.

Tennis star Serena Williams has also launched an auction to raise money for Haiti. She’s selling a load of her personal clothing and memorabilia to raise $92,000 for relief efforts.

The star is using her Serena Williams Foundation to help, and the total she wants to raise is the same as the fine she was handed for her on-court outburst at the US Open in September – an idea that came after the International Tennis Federation refused to donate some of her initial fine to charity.

The auction will run for 92 days, with new items being added weekly. Other items include a CD signed by Taylor Swift, an autographed jersey from NBA player Steve Nash, an autographed skateboard from Ryan Sheckler, and an autographed jersey from NBA player Carmelo Anthony just to name a few.
