Sean Penn might occasionally lose his temper, but his passion for social causes keeps him resting steady as one of our favorites!

On Thursday, The Huffington Post hosted the 2010 Game Changers — an annual event celebrating “100 innovators, mavericks, visionaries, and leaders who are changing the way we look at the world and the way we live in it.”

According to Arianna Huffington, “Game Changers operate in multiple worlds but, whatever the arena, they share a common trait: a willingness to look at things and take the risk of saying, ‘I think I have a better way.'”

At the ceremony, Penn — a game changer in many ways — was honored by Anderson Cooper for his work in Haiti.

Since the earthquake struck Haiti earlier this year, Penn has been working relentlessly to help rebuild the country and even founded the JP Haitian Relief Organization with philanthropist Diana Jenkins.

While accepting the award, Penn asked donors to be more discerning about where they send their money and suggested to entrepreneurs that Haiti would be the perfect location to create green tech jobs.
