Natalie Portman Speaks Out About Haiti

Natalie Portman has a call to action up today on the official website of FINCA, her charity initiative.

The 28-year-old actress has served as the Ambassador of Hope for the organization since 2004. Here’s what Nat had to share:

“The earthquakes that devastated Haiti this week only further the urgency of aid needed by this already-challenged nation. Haiti is a place where small loans can make a big difference.

“FINCA Haiti has always held a special place in my heart. Small loans make an enormous impact on the lives of Haitian women currently living on less than $3 a day. And now, more than ever, Haitian women need these capital inputs to help themselves recover from this tragedy in a sustainable way.

“As FINCA’s Ambassador of Hope, I am asking for your help. Please help FINCA Haiti provide the resources to our Village Banking clients so they can begin to get back on their feet and build anew. There has rarely been a more urgent need for generosity.

“Please give what you can, and I thank you for your continued support of FINCA programs around the world.
