Ellen DeGeneres, who was born in New Orleans and whose 82-year-old aunt managed to survive the carnage, will be soliciting funds on her daytime talk show. The show's producers have already donated $500,000 to the Red Cross and have promised to match viewer contributions up to that amount. 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' announced it will have celebrity guests autograph a Harley-Davidson motorcycle to auction off on eBay later this month to raise relief funds.
