BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
This year I am so excited to announce that I'll be running the TCS New York City Marathon 5k Dash to the Finish Line on behalf of Sean Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization: jphro.org. J/P HRO programs providing health care, education, construction, and the safe return to permanent housing for people left homeless by the devastating 2010 earthquake.
Two weeks after the earthquake, my sister Ruby and I got on the first plane to Haiti and volunteered with J/P HRO wherever help was needed. From changing bandages in hospitals, to delivering first aid and food to the camps for the survivors. When I returned to Los Angeles, this experience left a big impact on my heart and that’s why I’m so passionate about the work J/P HRO does in Haiti. What touched me the most was my experience with the Haitian people and seeing how they came together as a community and rallied to recover after such a devastating disaster.
So I hope you will join me on this mission to raise as much awareness and donations possible for J/P HRO’s programs in Haiti. I would not be able to do it without your help.
