Wyclef Jean Pleads For Help In Wake Of Haiti Earthquake

After hearing news of the awful earthquake in Haiti yesterday, I knew Wyclef Jean would immediately be one of the first people to start rallying support for aid. The rap star is one of the most active voices in campaigning for assistance in Haiti — especially in the wake of natural disasters.

After the country was rocked by hurricanes and tropical storms in 2008, Jean recruited Matt Damon to assist in lending a hand in delivering food and supplies. His foundation Yéle Haiti is constantly providing assistance to families — and he last year announced the building of a sustainable school to help children receive an education and achieve their dreams. He also recently partnered with Timberland on a new line of eco-boots benefiting Yéle Haiti, with an aim to help reforest the country.

So it’s no surprise that as soon as tragedy hit yesterday, Wyclef took to Twitter to rally the troops. “Your money will help with relief efforts,” he wrote. “They need our help – please help if you can.”  The former Fugees star has since said he is now on his way to the Caribbean state, via the Dominican Republic.

“Pray for the people of Haiti [and] me please,” he posted.

Oddly, Wyclef’s foundation site appears to be down right now. Nevertheless, MSNBC has a great list of active charities in Haiti and could use your help. Please take a moment to visit and lend your support to those suffering in the wake of this disaster.
