Rapper and activist Wyclef Jean is calling upon fans to donate money to help those in Haiti, which was hit with the largest earthquake ever recorded on the island today (January 12, 2010)

"Haiti today faced a natural disaster of unprecedented proportion, an earthquake unlike anything the country has ever experienced, The magnitude 7.0 earthquake – and several very strong aftershocks – struck only 10 miles from Port-au-Prince. I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now."

Clef asked fans to text "Yele" to 501501 to donate $5 to Yele Haiti, his non-profit organization that has provided aid and assistance to the country for over five years.

Here is a video of the horrible destruction...
