Josh Duhamel Fergie

Hooray for celeb couples who love charity!

Fergie got the Black Eyed Peas together to put on a benefit show in Josh Duhamel's recently flooded hometown of Minot, North Dakota and raised $1.3 million for relief efforts!

The money went toward the much needed Minot Area Recovery Fund which is bankrolling the town's rebuilding efforts after flood waters forced 11,000 residents out of their homes in June.

Duhamel showed his appreciation for his wife's band on Twitter after their performance Sunday, tweeting:

"A HUGE thank you to @iamwill, @TabBep, @apl_de & #Fergie for their incredible act of kindness for doing #MinotRising. North Dakota loves you."

Will.i.am. responded warmly with:

"@joshduhamel i.am proud to support #MinotRising…this is what its all about…'Americans helping americans' one neighborhood United States."

Sorry Jay-Z and Kanye, but this may have been one of our favorite collaborations of the year! Thanks to helping out those in need, guys (gal)!

Millions Of Spiders Cover Pakistan Trees In Webs

Filed under: HealthInsectsSpider

Pakistan Tree Spiders

Ewww!

We know every creature serves a purpose on this fantastic planet, but this imagery still gives us the shivers!

Due to excessive flooding in Pakistan in 2010 that submerged a fifth of the country, MILLIONS of spiders took to the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Pictured above are the trees that they effectively cocooned in spider webs, while seeking shelter from the water.

Unfortunately, spiders weren't the only creature affected by the flooding and 20 million human lives were also disrupted as a result.

However, remember that thing about every creature serving a purpose?

In the areas where spiders took over the trees, there are significantly less malaria-spreading mosquitos that are expected to accompany stagnant water.

Hooray for spiders! Creepy, disgusting spiders. Seriously though…good job spiders.

Kenny Rogers Donates $10,000 To Australian Food Fund

People are stepping up left and right to help out the flooded Australia in its time of need!

Country singer Kenny Rogers just gave $10,000 to Australia to help kick off his tour in the country.

Said Rogers:

“The other day I was watching the news and I realised what a real tragedy this is for so many people. If you hear 5,000 people were killed, you can't really relate to it, but if you hear one family has an incredibly touching story, you realise that could have been you. This is a devastating thing for your country and it doesn't look like it's over with yet.”

Rogers will be encouraging fans to donate throughout his tour.

Dog Waits By Brazilian Flood Victim's Grave

Filed under: Sad SadAdoptionDog

Dog waits by owners grave who died in Brazilian floods

This picture is heart wrenching!

Leao sat by her owners grave, who died in last weeks catastrophic landslides in Brazil, for several consecutive days.

Was she paying tribute or waiting for her return?

We can only imagine how confused and lost this poor creature is.

Her owner Cristina Maria Casario Santana was lost in the countries worst flood disaster on record that claimed the lives of at least 655 people.

We hope somebody has room for Leao in their home and can take her in.

Adorable Rescued Baby Bats

Filed under: Baby BlabberCuteness!RescueBatty Bat

Baby bats in blankets

So freakin' cute!

These baby bats were rescued by the Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre in the past weeks after being orphaned by a flood off the Gold Coast of Australia.

They are all wrapped in individual blankets and will be hanging on a clothes line until they are able to fly.

We think all bats should just hang out in little snuggy wraps all the time.

It's funny how a small piece of cloth can make a normally terrifying creature absolutely adorable!

Ahh! Cuteness overload!
