Longoria Parker, Valletta & Bello Call For Haiti Help

Actresses EVA LONGORIA PARKER, AMBER VALLETTA and MARIA BELLO have teamed up to urge the U.S. public to back a new Haiti charity campaign.
The trio has penned an open letter asking Americans to dig deep and donate to the Raise the Roof appeal, which aims to buy tents to shelter locals left homeless by January's (10) devastating earthquake.
The letter reads, "With rainy season just two weeks away, more than a million Haitian people are still displaced as a result of the January 12th earthquake and are living in tent cities in shelters made of makeshift tarps and cotton bed sheets. Two nights ago at the Petionville Displacement Camp in Port-au-Prince, the rains were so hard that the entire village was a foot thick in mud by the next morning.
"These people need SHELTER more than anything right now. That is why A Home In Haiti and Athletique d'Haiti have created Raise the Roof, a campaign to IMMEDIATELY obtain tents and get them out to the hundreds of various displacement camps.
"Because we work on the ground in Haiti we can GUARANTEE that all tents will get to the ground and be put to use RIGHT NOW. Our goal is to get 100,000 tents to Haiti within two weeks. Please go to www.ahomeinhaiti.org to buy a tent with just one click.
"Thank you in advance from the people of Haiti. All Our Best, Eva Longoria Parker, Amber Valletta and Maria Bello and (Director of A Home in Haiti) Shaun King."
