Sean Penn

and his J/P Haitian Relief Organization

at the annual Haiti Rising Gala

at the Montage in Los Angeles. In the room, a record

$37 million

was committed to J/P HRO and their initiatives in Haiti, which included contributions

from the Government of France, The Parker Foundation and World Bank, along with proceeds from the live auction. Sean Penn continues his passionate work for Haiti– and Hollywood and its A-list moguls and stars are standing with him to shine a light and raise

much needed funds. J/P HRO’s current initiatives include Hurricane Matthew response and the Haiti Takes Root reforestation coalition. Nick Jonas announced a partnership with J/P HRO and his organization Beyond Type One, to serve those with diabetes in Haiti.

Those in attendance included Beck
