Garth & Trisha Rebuild In Haiti

Country music artists Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood joined Habitat for Humanity in Haiti this month to help build 100 homes during the 28th Annual “Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project.”

The 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti in January 2010 caused widespread devastation, destroying 105,000 homes. This project is being held in Haiti in 2011 and 2012 to build homes and raise awareness of the need for ongoing support for Haiti’s recovery.
