WEEN Teams With Wyclef on Haiti

-A +A
The Women In Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN) presents WEEN for Haiti: A Water & Aid Collection Event taking place on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 from 5-11 p.m. at Katra Lounge (217 Bowery Street) in New York City.  All proceeds and water collected will go directly to Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti foundation & Doctors without Borders, the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.


Valeisha Butterfield, Co-founder and Chair of WEEN  stated, “It is in times like these that our humanitarian strength is tested.  This catastrophe is a wake up call and it is our responsibility to tap into our resources to support our sisters and brothers in Haiti.  In the spirit of our mission, WEEN members will join forces to help restore the lives of all affected by this unfortunate disaster.  This is one of many steps we are taking to do our part.”

HoneyMag.com (www.honeymag.com), the 2FiftySevenGroup, Lauren Lake Enterprises (www.laurenlake.com) , Grae Enterprises (www.graeenterprise.com) and Beanpye (www.beanpye.com) are partnering companies that support WEEN’s global initiative to unify the world one step at a time.  In addition, Katra Lounge has graciously agreed to offer 10% of all bar profits to WEEN for Haiti.

Recognizing the state of the U.S. economy, WEEN encourages contributions large or small.  Everyone is encouraged to attend this crucial initiative and contribute at least two gallons of water and the financial contribution you are able.
