Since Anderson Cooper‘s “360 Exclusive TV interview with Angelina Jolie, the phones at UNHCR’s donation center have not stopped ringing,” a CNN spokesperson e-mailed this afternoon. “The program displayed UNHCR’s donation hotline throughout the two hour special. There was a significant spike in donations; over $350,000 pledged (and climbing), including most significantly 30% of these new donors decided to join UNHCR’s monthly gift program, indicating an interest in long term involvement in helping refugees.”
