Help Haiti


Like millions of people around the world I've been shocked by the terrible events in Haiti. It hits even closer to home for me because Haiti is my home.  I was born there and seeing how the earthquake has ravaged my country is heartbreaking.

Only now is the true scale of the disaster emerging. Reports now suggest as many as 50,000 people may have died, with hundreds of thousands made homeless. 

The work ahead to recover from this tragedy is immense. So here's our goal: $890 million for Haiti. That's how much Haiti owes to the International Monetary Fund, the Inter-American Development Bank, and a handful of others. 

Sign the petition below to ask Haiti's creditors to act quickly and cancel Haiti's debts:

As Haiti begins to rebuild we can help by lifting this debt.
