Please join me along with Forrest Whitaker, Kanye West, Wyclef Jean, Depak Chopra , Mayor Villaraigosa, and many others in this special benefit for the people of Haiti. This Second Aid – Haiti Food Project is Thursday night February 4, from 6-9 :30 pm at the American Jewish University
We will sing and speak and come together to raise awareness and money for the people of Haiti who have suffered so much after the recent earthquakes.
Organized by my dear friend, Dr. Eric Schockman who is the president of MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger and co-sponsored by many groups including the Board of Rabbis of Southern California, and the Depak Chopra Foundation. The funds raised will go directly to groups on the ground in Haiti responding to the many needs of the men and women and children affected so greatly.
People ask where is God in such a humanitarian crisis. Is God in the earthquake itself? I say no–God is not in the earthquake–other than in the people who respond with kindness and expertise and selflessness. God is in you and I who will turn out and donate and in those who are able to go to Haiti and be responders. God will be in how we continue to support this poorest of Caribbean nations so they can rebuild and create a new society that will care for all those injured. God will be in the human to human caring we express.
So come out on a Thursday night. Come and be together. Let’s raise some serious money to help make a huge difference. This evening of solidarity is important. Tickets are available by calling MAZON to RSVP at 310.442.0020 ext.106 .
Tickets are $360/$180/$36 (students)
VIP Packages: $2500, $5000 and $10,000 includes access to the VIP Party.
