BENEFITING: STILLER FOUNDATION
Hey all, let's help Ben Stiller and Sean Penn raise money to help rebuild schools in Haiti. There's still so much work to do.
Starting February 7th, the person who joins Ben Stiller's team and raises the most money by February 9th at 11:59pm eastern will win 2 Free Tickets to the Help Haiti Event in NYC on Friday, February 11th. (who wants to come with me???) Ben Stiller is hosting the event which will honor Sean Penn's relentless efforts to help Haiti. It will also raise money for their foundation and what we are doing in Haiti.
This was all inspired by Ben Stiller's first visit to Haiti in 2009, he started a unique fundraising campaign called Stillerstrong. Basically, the idea was to rip off Lance Armstrong's wristband campaign for Livestrong, only do it with headbands. His first campaign resulted in more than $300,000 raised to support the Save the Children School in Cévérine, Haiti. When the January 2010 earthquake hit, they expanded their commitment to Haiti with a broader effort to rebuild schools for children affected by the catastrophe. They launched the “Haitian School Initiative” in partnership with Architecture for Humanity – a non-profit organization that brings design, construction and development services to communities in need.
The Stiller Foundation and Architecture for Humanity are currently rebuilding four badly damaged schools in the Port-Au-Prince area, which will allow hundreds or even thousands of kids to get back in school as quickly as possible. Schools are an important safe haven for kids in times of crisis and are instrumental in delivering not only education but they're also essential for delivering healthcare, nutrition and other critical services.
The more money we raise the more schools we can build. I'm hoping anyone who is looking for a way to help Haiti emerge from this crisis will join us in this effort.
