Last night at Huffington Post’s celebration of its 100 Game Changers, we bumped into Sean Penn, who was asking people to donate to his Haitian charity, the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization. “What about young people who may not have the money to donate? What can they do to help?” I asked him, worried that I might be given the Tara Palmeri treatment and be forcibly removed from the premises.
But Sean was overly-gracious: “We have jobs for young people that are willing to come down and help rebuild the country,” Sean said. “Tell people to go JPHRO.org and see what they can do to help.” Hey, if you hate your temping job that much, going to Haiti to work with Sean Penn might give you a great sense of perspective.”
