Wyclef Jean’s organization to aid earthquake relief efforts is announcing substantial success after accepting donations for the cause.
Wyclef’s Yele Haiti was one of several organizations spearheading aid to the troubled island and is now announcing successfully receiving over $1 million in aid since soliciting for help Wednesday.
The organization is not finished however, donations are still being accepted and they have set a new goal of $1 million per day.
To help Yele reach that goal people are strongly encouraged to text “Yele” to 501501 to make a donation of $5.
While the search and rescue process takes over in Haiti, Wyclef has been in the country alongside his wife and members of his organization.
During that time Clef spoke to Fox News correspondent Bill Hemmer on the tragedy.
He tells the reporter while preliminary numbers estimate that 100,000 people perished in the incident he estimates as many as 400,000 people have died.
“The best way to describe this is apocalypse….the count is not 100,000 there’s atleast 400 to 500,000 people that is about to die….we spent the day picking up dead bodies.”
