Live Concert for Haiti Relief to Air February 5th.
Many of us thought that the "Hope For Haiti" telethon & concert that raised money for Haiti earthquake relief would be the final big effort by R&B artists to help out, but we were wrong; BET Networks and a number of entertainers are getting ready to put on another, similar event. Mary J. Blige, Drake, Justin Bieber, Keri Hilson, Robin Thicke and Monica are among the artists scheduled to perform at the "SOS Saving OurSelves - Help for Haiti" show taking place at 8 p.m. Eastern time in Miami, Florida on Feb. 5, 2010. The two-hour telethon, which will be hosted Sean "Diddy" Combs, Queen Latifah and Pharrell, airs live on BET, MTV, VH1 and Centric (the channel formerly known as BET Jazz). It'll also be streamed live on bet.com. Proceeds will aid various organizations including Yele Haiti, CARE, Project Medishare and Children's Safe Drinking Water.
Now that the media and majority of the groundwork helpers are leaving the island, it is now that we should start to give what we can, The World Food Program is still accepting donations, so is Yele and all the other organisations, please keep Haiti in your heart, thoughts and prayers, as well as give what you can, if you can.
