The charity effort has raised $50,000 and the money will be used to a school constructed in the earthquake-ravaged country.

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 $1 for every 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."

Earlier this year, all stars ranging from Jamie Foxx, Justin Bieber, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, Janet Jackson and LL Cool J teamed up for a remix version of "We Are the World" for Haiti charity effort.
