Eva Longoria has penned a letter to the people of the US to urge them to support a new campaign for Haiti.
“With rainy season just two weeks away, more than a million Haitian people are still displaced as a result of the January 12th earthquake and are living in tent cities in shelters made of makeshift tarps and cotton bed sheets,” reads the letter. "Two nights ago at the Petionville Displacement Camp in Port au Prince, the rains were so hard that the entire village was a foot thick in mud by the next morning.
“These people need SHELTER more than anything right now. That is why A Home In Haiti and Athletique d Haiti (firstname.lastname@example.org) have created “Raise the Roof,” a campaign to IMMEDIATELY obtain tents and get them out to the hundreds of various displacement camps.
“Because we work on the ground in Haiti we can GUARANTEE that all tents will get to the ground and be put to use RIGHT NOW. Our goal is to get 100,000 tents to Haiti within two weeks. Please go to www.ahomeinhaiti.org to buy a tent with just one click.
“Thank you in advance from the people of Haiti. All Our Best, Eva Longoria Parker, Amber Valletta and Maria Bello and [Director of ‘A Home in Haiti’] Shaun King.”
