R3VOLVE HAITI

A RAPINO FOUNDATION EVOLUTION

BEGINNINGS

IN 2010 AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE, I VISITED HAITI WITH MY DEAR FRIEND SEAN PENN AND HIS DISASTER RELIEF ORGANIZATION JPHRO NOW KNOWN AS CORE. HE AND HIS TEAM SHOWED ME A SIDE OF HAITI THAT A SIMPLE GUEST OR TOURIST COULD NOT SEE. I SAW THE BEAUTY AND RESILIENCE OF A PEOPLE HELD DOWN BY CAPITALISM. I SAW ENTIRE FAMILIES STRUGGLING TO PROVIDE THE MOST BASIC NEEDS FOR EACH OTHER. I SAW A LAND AND A PEOPLE SURVIVING THE RESULTS OF A LONG HISTORY OF POWERFUL AND INSENSITIVE FOREIGN INTERVENTIONS. 

HAITI IS MEANT TO BE AN INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC AND A SAFE HAVEN FOR ALL 'FREEDOM SEEKERS', THE 'PEARL OF THE ANTILLES'.  

THE CHALLENGES ARE GREAT BUT IF HAITI HAS TAUGHT ME ANYTHING, ITS THAT WE CAN ALL DO, ENDURE AND NAVIGATE HARD THINGS.

SHE IS A REVOLUTIONARY AND SHE WAKES UP MY OWN INNER REVOLUTIONARY. SO, I TOOK A PAGE OUT OF SEAN'S WILD, WILD WEST PLAY BOOK AND FOUNDED THE RAPINO FOUNDATION NOW KNOWN AS 'R3VOLVE HAITI'

THE INSPIRATION FOR R3VOLVE COMES FROM MY THREE SONS. RYDER, RIVER AND REX AND THE DREAM TO SEE THE WORLD REVOLVE AROUND HAITI THE WAY I REVOLVE MY SONS. IT'S TIME FOR THE WORLD TO MAKE AMENDS TO HAITI WITH A PENANCE THAT REACHES THE HAITIAN PEOPLE NOT HAITI AS A PAWN ON THE GLOBAL CHESS BOARD AND FURTHERMORE TRUSTS THAT HAITIANS ARE THE BEST STEWARDS OF THEIR OWN CARE.

I BELIEVE THAT HAITIANS KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR HAITI, THEY JUST NEED TO BE HEARD IN A WORLD THAT'S VERY LOUD. SO I HAND THEM A MICROPHONE AND A VIDEO CAMERA AND AMPLIFY THEIR VOICE. THEY WILL BE HEARD. ALL I HAVE TO DO IS EMPOWER, ENCOURAGE, ELEVATE AND PROTECT THIS LAND AND THESE PEOPLE. SIMPLE.

THIS IS ME AS A FOREIGNER MAKING AMENDS TO THIS LAND FOR THE ATROCITIES AND INJUSTICES SHE HAS ENDURED AT THE HANDS OF FOREIGNERS AND I DO IT WITH GRACE, STRENGTH AND EYES WIDE OPEN.

HAITI REPRESENTS HOPE & LIBERTY TO ALL STRUGGLING PEOPLES AND ONE DAY HAITI WILL BE A BEACON OF LIGHT FOR ALL UNDERDEVELOPED AND SUPRESSED COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD. THIS IS WHY MY FAMILY PLACES OUR FOCUS ON HAITI. SHE DESERVES THE CHANCE TO SHINE. 

WE ALL DO.

    Mother Earth paints for us, day after day, her pictures of infinite beauty. We seem to work so hard to alter her artistry but, we have a dream that one day our industrious spirit and her artistry will compliment each other and we shall all paint as one.
