Eva Longoria is using Twitter to reach out to fellow celebrities to organize and promote a fundraiser that will help residents of Haiti.
On January 12th, 2010, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastated Haiti. The government has reported the number of people dead in the hundreds of thousands. Officials report that the earthquake has also left over a million people homeless.
In an effort to help the homeless, Longoria is working with a charity called A Home for Haiti in order to raise money to provide durable, waterproof tents to the residents of Haiti.
In a tweet to Taylor Swift, Longoria writes “Hey Taylor! We have a super simple idea for a charity auction 4 Haiti & would LOVE for U to be a part! Can we send U details?”
Longoria, who has been involved in a number of charities in the past, was once named Philanthropist of the Year by The Hollywood Reporter.
The auction is expected to launch on September 15, and LookToTheStars.org will bring you more info as it is announced.
