Video: Wyclef Reacts to Earthquake in Haiti

The victims and their families of this catastrophe are in our thoughts and prayers. Hit the jump to read Wyclef’s statement and see how you can help out:

NEW YORK—The following is a statement by Wyclef Jean on today’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti: “Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced.

The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince.

I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now.

President Obama has already said that the U.S. stands ‘ready to assist’ the Haitian people. The U.S. Military is the only group trained and prepared to offer that assistance immediately. They must do so as soon as possible. The international community must also rise to the occasion and help the Haitian people in every way possible.”

Many people have already reached out to see what they can do right now. We are asking those interested to please do one of two things: Either you can use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill), or you can visit Yele.org and click on DONATE.

Haiti needs your prayers and support.

    But if I’m not mistaken, Hong Kong went back to the Chinese, it wasnt forced to created an independent governent, it was just re-absorbed.

    ^i mean damn.. what kind of person can block off part of their brain to where this is suitable behavior?…

  17. cOLD Says:

    just for clarification, he said “good” not perfect. Good is just one degree greater that bad.

    ^^
    That’s foul, but there’s dozens, if not more, cases of dudes doing the same thing.

    And like I’ve said numerous times on here, a man catching HIV thru vaginal intercourse is not very likely.

    i mean damn.. what kind of person can block off part of their brain to where this is suitable behavior?…

    ^ I dont know the story, but some women are bitter and feel asthough men have taken advantage of them since early, and this is some type payback. I remember this one chick on Ricki Lake back in the day was targeting cops with the Aids.

    Donated, I’ll gladly drink a few beers less this weekend knowing I at least did something.
