On January 12th, the biggest earthquake to hit Haiti in 200 years struck kill tens of thousands of people. Red Cross is working to deliver relief to the surrounding areas to get the people of Haiti the help that is desperately needed. I urge everyone to donate whatever they can to help with the relief efforts at their local Red Cross.
I myself have never been to Haiti but last summer I had the opportunity to visit many of the Caribbean islands and perform some magic for the locals. It was a great feeling to be able to bring magic to the lives of the people of St. Martin, St. Kitts & Nevis, and Trinidad. I have some brief footage of me performing in the area I’ll be posting in the near future.
David Blaine in New York is running a 3 day marathon of magic. He’ll be performing for 3 days nonstop with no sleep to raise money for the efforts. David will be in Times Square between 43rd and 44th St – intersection of 7th Ave and Broadway starting at 9am this morning. If you are in the area, give him a visit. I applaud his efforts. He visited Haiti a few years back and has some clips performing for the local Haitians. Take a look below and enjoy.
