Kevin Max: Haiti and the Homeless

Name:   Kevin Max  

What is your job?  Singer/Writer/Actor/Activist

What social causes are most important to you? Anything that truly helps people.

What charities do you support – and how?
 There are several charities that I feel are relevant and worthwhile supporting…recently, I have been behind Safe Water Nexus as they are on the ground in Haiti and are a small and up and coming company with a huge heart.  Also a friend of mine has an outreach to the homeless in the Los Angeles area and abroad, it is called ‘Can’t Ignore The Poor’ and ‘The Jonah Project’- very interesting concepts and run by people with their ears to the ground and not interested in the hype machine.

Michael Duran: All Hands On Deck For Haiti

What is your job?
Currently working as a door-man/ security for a couple bars in Seattle. Also as a volunteer deckhand on sailing ships.

What social causes are most important to you?
For the last year, the earthquake in Haiti has been my primary focus. Being the poorest country in the western hemisphere, Haiti is dire need for help. Although much of the current government is corrupt, the average Haitian person is warm-hearted and genuinely loving. My primary motivation is for the children. It's up to them to correct the problems for Haiti and with help they can grow to do that.
