Actress Garcelle Beauvais Nilon is going back to her roots. A native of Haiti, the Hollywood beauty is a campaign ambassador for LOVE ‘N HAITI, a recycling project in Port-au-Prince that turns everyday trash into energy. Other stars are joining her to rally behind the embattled country to win a global competition hosted by BBC World News and Newsweek. The cash grant will help LOVE ‘N HAITI continue its recycling efforts, which aid in decreasing deforestation, creating jobs, and reducing the incidence of floods. Wyclef, President Bill Clinton, Russell Simmons, Free and Jamie Hector have all signed on and now it’s your turn. Cast your vote to help Haiti here: theworldchallenge.co.uk/index.php. Voting ends November 13.—CJ
