Standing by to take your call are operators, as well as actors and actresses. The camera has shown the likes of Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Alyssa Milano, Leonardio DiCaprio, Wyclef Jean and more.
George Clooney is the host of Hope for Haiti, along with other guest speakers like reporter Anderson Cooper and Nicole Kidman.
Haiti needs your help.
For the children without a home, without food, and for the children who are dead without a place to be buried – – your donation can make a difference.
For the mother, the father and the grandmother who have lost their entire life to the recent devastating earthquake — the time is now to help rebuild their world. Your donation can make a difference.
For the brother, pulling back the rubble to save his sister — “…hard times come again no more…” Mary J. Blige sings right now. The time is now for you to help the Haitians in this hard time.
Before you tuck your children into bed tonight, before you grab dinner at a drive-thru, before you take a shower with hot water or before you place your head on a pillow–take a moment to think of those without all these things.
These people who do not even have a home to go home to and a clear road to walk or drive down, think of those who do not, those we can help.
It is you, it is me–it is us–we can help this nation. I would like to think if my Mother, my Father, and my family were lost to a natural disaster, and the entire United States as we know it was gone, others across the world would come together to rebuild the United States — my home, my family, and all I have ever known.
We can do the same for Haiti.
Beyonce’ sings, “Haiti, we can see your halo, I pray it won’t fade away…”
You can do it now.
The time is now.
