Funnyman Ben Stiller is celebrating after his online charity campaign raised $50,000 to build a school in Haiti.
The Meet the Fockers star agreed a deal with bosses at Yahoo, who pledged to give the actor 67p for every Twitter.com user who clicked on an online photo he posted of himself at the Cannes Lions advertising festival in France.

Executives at the internet company will now hand over a $50,000 cheque for a temporary school to be constructed in the earthquake-ravaged country.

In a post on his Twitter account, Stiller writes, “Hey – woke up in Europe to learn we reached our goal of 50 thousand shares – THANK YOU!! Yahoo will build us a school in Haiti.”
