All of a sudden, spending $65 on a sliver of shiny silver spandex makes sense.

Lindsay Lohan has announced that 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of her 6126 brand “Fame” leggings will go to Save the Children, one of the aid groups working with earthquake victims in Haiti.

“It is truly horrible what has happened to the people and children of Haiti,” the actress said in a statement. “I believe every company should do their part by donating what they can.”

Jessica Simpson agrees.

The singer has teamed up with her hairstylist pal Ken Paves to set up a donation program with the charity Souls4Soles, which has pledged 1 million pairs of shoes to the Haiti relief effort.

“Just five dollars will buy two people a pair of shoes,” Simpson said in directing would-be donors to the project’s home, 50KShoes.com.

Meanwhile, joining the hands-on relief effort yesterday was John Travolta, who flew his own plane, packed with food and medical equipment, from his home in Florida to the Caribbean island.

Making the trip with him were wife Kelly Preston, several doctors and ministers from the Church of Scientology.

“We have the ability to actually help make a difference in the situation in Haiti, and I just can’t see not using this plane to help,” said Travolta, who returned to Florida with Preston after the supplies had been unloaded.

In other developments on the Haiti relief front:

• Miley Cyrus and Mariah Carey are the latest singers to sign on for a reported charity cover of R.E.M.‘s “Everybody Hurts” being produced by Simon Cowell in conjunction with Britain’s Sun tabloid.
