Jesse Sullivan camps out for Haiti in Washington, DC.

Hundreds of miles away from Haiti, one of our own is attempting to understand some of the suffering of the Haitian people. Jesse Sullivan, founder of OneWorld and current aid to the ambassador of Haiti is spending an entire month in a tent on the streets of Washington, D.C. In doing so he intends to show his solidarity with the Haitian people and raise money to bring them emergency shelter. In the first half of the month he has pledged to stay outside he has faced record snowfalls, clothes and blankets soaked with ice cold water, as well as interviews from CNN and the like. Through his acts we are reminded that though the images of Haiti have faded from most of the front pages, the damage is still devastating and suffering of the people has not yet ceased.To follow Jesse’s experience follow his blog or subscribe to his YouTube channel.
