Wyclef Jean urges fans to donate to earthquake victims

Thursday January 14, 2010

Haiti-born rap star Wyclef Jean is encouraging fans to donate to victims of the horrific earthquake that struck the Caribbean state this week.

"Your money will help with relief efforts," the star posted on his Twitter page. 

"They need our help - please help if you can."

"Pray for the people of Haiti and me please," he posted. 

The former Fugees member was made a roving ambassador for Haiti two years ago and provides humanitarian aid and assistance through his own Yele Haiti foundation.

Thousands are feared dead after the 7.0-magnitude quake. 

"I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse," Wyclef adds.
