Pras Honors Haiti with Relief Bracelet and Benefit

In the wake of the disastrous earthquake that devastated the island country of Haiti last month (Jan. 12), countless celebrities and everyday people have stepped up to help. Now, former Fugees member, Pras, has come up with a unique way to assist his homeland as well.

The PrAsperity Project, a non-profit organization founded by Pras, has produced the PrAsperity Haiti Relief Bracelet. The limited edition tiger eye beaded bracelet is being sold specifically to benefit and honor the people of Haiti.

Working in conjunction with organizations like the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and the Salvation Army, PrAsperity is donating 30-percent of the $90 cost of each bracelet sold directly to Haiti. The money will be used to help rebuild homes, schools, hospitals, and create jobs in the Caribbean country.

Earlier this year Pras told the New York Daily News that relief was taking too long to reach the island nation.

“If these people don’t get what they need, there’s going to be a civil war,” he said. “If there was an earthquake in Manhattan and New Yorkers couldn’t get food, I guarantee you New Yorkers would act like the Haitians. It’s about survival.”

The relief bracelet is just one of the many projects the PrAsperity Project is using to expedite the relief effort. There also plans to host the PrAsponse to Haiti Benefit next Tuesday (Feb. 23), in New York City. Proceeds from the evening’s silent auction will also go to relief efforts in Haiti.

    30% of the proceeds go to helping Haiti? Why not all of it? Something smells fishy…..

    That’s a nice bracelet. Tiger’s Eye beads can run some change. David Yurman sells them for 300-500…

    I also respect the fact that you get something back of quality as well, and not “just give”…understand a song is only given royalties, there are other costs…

    I’m in Haiti been here for 30+ days now and they do not like him or Wyclef at all. Real talk homie I’m out here in the streets all day with people here in Port au Prince and they don’t like none of them. Same note everyone trying to raise money for what because The President of Haiti on down is crooked so you think the people who really needs to get that money going see it. Wait on it, Also on the President of Haiti has not spoken to the people here in Haiti not once since I’ve been here 30+ days. TELL CNN AND SLY FOX to get hot on that one………..real talk NC2VA1
