    Thumbs up Beenie Man Vows to help Wyclef Jean and people of Haiti

    International Grammy-winning reggae superstar Beenie Man has responded to the plea of multi-platinum, Grammy-winning musician, and humanitarian Wyclef Jean whose native country experienced its worst national disaster for over 200 years on Tuesday of this week. Beenie Man has pledged to lend his artistic skills to help raise funds directed towards any humanitarian and fund-raising efforts to help the people of Haiti.



    "My heart goes out to Wyclef and to the people of Haiti. I saw the devastation of the island on the news and I was moved, the hundreds of dead bodies piling up on the streets, the buildings destroyed by the earthquake, people working to rescue friends and family trapped in the rubble...and I want to make myself available to help in any way I can," Beenie Man said in a release.

    "I hope that the Caribbean community will also organise quickly and help our brothers and sisters in every way possible, or else we will have an even bigger disaster on our hands. The schools are packed with dead people, the hospitals full of sick and dying, all communications cut off...it's a catastrophe."

    Beenie Man and Wyclef Jean collaborated on the radio hit, Love Me Now and another song called Lie Detector several years ago.

    "Wyclef Jean and I share a passion for improving communities throughout the world and he has always been very hands-on when it comes to looking after his home nation so I can't imagine what he is going through at this very difficult time," Beenie Man, who has also spearheaded social and environmental programmes in tough inner city areas such as Craig Town, Arnett Gardens and Waterhouse in his native Jamaica, said. Beenie Man has already contributed money to the Yele charity to aid humanitarian efforts.

    Haiti is regarded as the most impoverished nation in the Western hemisphere and is home to 9 million people, four million of whom live in the capital city, Port-au-Prince and its environs.
    The quake's epicenter was only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince. In 2008, Haiti was hit by four hurricanes. Wyclef, a Goodwill Ambassador to Haiti, started the Yele Haiti Foundation to raise relief funds for the area following Hurricane Gustav in 2008.

    To help Haiti Earthquake Relief, donate $5 by texting YELE to 501501...charity is Wyclef's Yele.org

    We all need to help too becaues wyclef all ways been a big supporter of our music.

    big up fisheenie, big up jamaica

    I heard him mention the artist to Anderson Cooper (CNN) last night. He said word is the young man might be dead, but wanted confirmation. In a time like this; self promotion don't worry me. Once ppl who making donations hearts are in the right place and the funds get to the needy..then that's all that should matter.
