It’s no secret that actor Sean Penn has worked endlessly to help the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake that struck the island in 2010.

He’s made trips to the impoverished nation, held celebrity fundraisers, recorded a PSA for the country and filmed an Oprah special about his work there.

And now, thanks to his efforts, Penn has been named an official ambassador to the country.

He received the honor last Saturday, at the Cinema for Peace benefit in Beverly Hills. Haitian foreign minister Laurent Lamothe offered Penn the position, which he publicly accepted while at the podium, where he greeted the crowd.

“I do accept. (It would be useful to) change being called, ‘Hey you (bleep), to hey Mr. Ambassador!” he said.

The event was attended by a number of A-listers, including George Clooney, Hilary Swank, Julia Roberts, Orlando Bloom and Demi Moore. It raised more than $5 million for Haiti, including $50,000 from Roberts’ husband, Danny Moder, who offered up the money in order to visit Haiti with Penn.
