    I think that Sean Penn; Along with all of his time and effort; He truely is a man who has shown everyone around the world that he is a crusader in an effort to help the Haitian people. Now what bother's me the most is how the efforts to rebound from this enviromental disaster is delayed. This even goes beyond the Media, and they hype of it's reporter's too. I believe the Government of Haiti, even in a state where it's paralyzed, their government is to blame as well. But the WORLD in itself should share the blunt of all of this, and everyone should try to help in one form or another. One idea.... Why do they not try to re-build thier country just like SanFrancisco did in the early 1900's from the catastrophic quake that leveled it. Take all of that rubble, and push it out into the bays,gradually compact it, and back fill dirt over it for expansion. If they can take sand/silt from the oceans in Dubai to put million dollar condo's on the palm's retreat, they could do that over all the rubble. Take the money and put the people to work that want to survive and have shelter dammit!

    I was watching the CNN special with Anderson Cooper on Haiti. Anderson interviewed Sean Penn. Sean said if people are not comfortable donating money to charities for Haiti. he would personally find a family for ordinary people like myself to adopt. I am very interested in adopting a family. I am disgusted with the way things are in Haiti. I was one of those harding working people who made a donation through my credit card. I don't want to give my money to any charities anymore. The people are not getting the money. I want to give my money directly to a family. Please contact me.

    I was extremely impressed with all they have managed to do looking at the website. Given the chaos that was Haiti in the first few weeks and months after the earthquake the degree of organization that the accomplishments represent is impressive and the amount of hard work it represents is almost unimaginable. My thanks go to Sean Penn and his coworkers – they have certainly been a lifesaver for many people in Haiti.
