Doesn't this worm know how many millions of dollars have been poured into that country since the quake? It's being squandered by the officials there. Donating to Haiti, might as well flush your money down the toilet, than donate to ANY country run by simians.

Doesn't this creep fits the physical profile of a child molester?

Can you envision him offering candy to a little boy or girl?

Japan and Chile experienced similar quakes and recovered relatively quickly. How come haiti can't do the same. Like one person said you may as well flush your money down the toilet! We have already spent more om haiti than it took to rebuild Europe after WW2!

I do not agree for logical reasons. Penn went give the FuXX up as in your money to Haiti. Give your money up. He does a great disservice to Haiti and the States by his actions. I've been to Haiti and working with them now the right way.

Sending money and food is NOT the answer. The problem must big fixed instead. This is being done with training the people of Haiti to grow fish for food, prepare the land for farming since soil is terrible and teaching them how to farm for food and profit and to replant when the cut trees down. The mountains have few to no trees from years of devistation of chopping down and not planting.

They need to feel good about themselves, make money and be fed at the same time so teaching them these things is how to go rather than sending money.

Best thing to send are seeds for fruits and vegs that will grow in that zone and for people to go there to help with the soil and teach them how to work with soil like in Israel.

Penn has a huge Ego and is the most unattractive male other than Woddy Allen.

What about the fact that one out of every four American children are starving to death? Where is help for them?

Start at home then in a hundred years help others.

Sean Penn, you're a low IQ idiot.

Haiti was the wealthiest and most productive country in the caribbean prior to the forced indemnity of France in 1825. Haiti completed payment of this monumental larceny in 1947, principal plus interest at nearly 15% per annum. Then the Americans came into Haiti in 1915 to 1934; by force. They publicly crucified Haitians who opposed their occupation there. They also raided what was left of Haiti's wealth and deceptively rationalized their theft by building sub-standard roads, bridges, and ports. I can go on and on. My point is, when your people were stealing Haiti's resources did they flush it down the toilet?

Seeds are good but I am sure that the produce and crops derived from these seeds will only benefit the planter and his immediate family. Thanks to foreign manipulations to our agricultural markets, many large-scale Haitian farmers have been driven out of business. Let me expain how it works (one example).... The US floods the Haitian market with cheap/super low cost rice. Poor Haitians buy only the cheap rice, would'nt you? The major Haitian local rice farmers cannot compete and subsequently close their businesses. With them out of the way, the US rice suppliers increase the price of rice 300%, further starving the poor. Look closely to the socio-political dynamics rather than to the media for the truth.
