Penn's J/P Haitian Relief Organization has received a $2.25 million grant which will be used to get people into homes through rental subsidies, as well as by creating new housing and repairing existing homes.
The actor released a statement saying:
”We believe this grant marks an important step in the rebuilding of Haiti. Together, we will persist until the hundreds of thousands still displaced are safely home."
Ben Stiller founded the Stiller Foundation to help build schools in the ravaged country, but most recently has organized an art auction to raise money for various relief efforts, including Penn's!

Awesome job, guys!

Lisa Hallerman is making a major life decision after putting 15 successful years into being a talent agent. She's had huge starts under her wing (Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn…), yet she's decided to follow her heart and "she’ll be using her professional experience in the service business and her life experience with close to a decade of sobriety to start a case management business for the drug/alcohol dependent as well as run a sober living home for young male addicts."
Everyone should be extremely proud of her, and honestly should be inspired by her urge to help others. Here's a little more about her and her move:
Trained as an attorney, Hallerman is in the process of studying at UCLA to become a licensed drug and alcohol counsellor. She is starting Hally Consulting designed to give expert guidance and compassionate support to the addict and his/or significant others with the utmost discretion and confidentiality. She also is running Hally West, a sober living house in Santa Monica with nine beds primarily for young adult men ages 18-30. ”I feel so lucky and blessed to have had the career I have had, to work with the talent and colleagues I’ve worked with, that I feel nothing but gratitude,” Elisa tells me today. ”But I feel like I’m at a time in my life where I want to continue to grow and have my life get bigger. This felt like the natural next phase for me. Now I’ll be able to incorporate the relationships and knowledge I have gained over 15 years in the service business and go from a place of advocating for people’s careers to building and guiding their lives and recovery.”
Elisa, we wish you nothing but good luck and fortune as you head into following you heart. It must have been a difficult decision, and it won't go unnoticed. We're sure all of Hollywood supports you!
We never thought we'd see these two host anything together!
The Haiti fund is something that is close to Clinton's heart as he himself has launched the Clinton Foundation Haiti Fund and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund with former President George W. Bush.
After the 2010 earthquake that devastated thousands, Ben Stiller was inspired to create his foundation. The September 23rd gala will feature art donated by well-renowned artists.
Good work, gentlemen.
