WATCH NOW: Celebrities Bring Hope for Haiti: Performances & Pictures Of The Telethon Last Night!

Filed under : Entertainment

The reason why we do what we are doing for Haiti…

Heroes are made, not born! I am inspired by baby Elisabeth & 7-year old Kiki! They have been found alive, days after the earthquake in Haiti. Check out their flicks below…

My heroine, baby Elisabeth Joassaint

Elisabeth was only 11-days old when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. According to news reports, it was a full seven days later that a French rescue team returned to the ruins to search for the baby’s body & heard faint cries. Elisabeth was found alive!

Goose bumps because I am thinking how much purpose this baby girl has, that she fought to live…at 11 days old! I am so following her life story! Greatness!

7-year-old Kiki Joachin

7-year old Kiki Joachin captured the world with his “I smiled because I was free — I smiled because I was alive.” According to the New York Post, this little Haitian boy greeted rescuers with a beaming grin and open arms as they freed him from a huge pile of rubble…

Tell me you are not inspired!

Peep the video of the celeb performances for the Hope for Haiti Now telethon which was held on Friday night. Actor/humanitarian George Clooney and Wyclef Jean pulled together Hollywood’s best and brightest for the two-hour telethon to raise money for support for victims of the quake that hit Haiti Jan 12.

All proceeds will go to five relief organizations actively operating in Haiti: Oxfam America, Partners in Health, Red Cross, UNICEF and Wyclef’s Yele Haiti.
