Did you know there are 50,000 NEW amputees in Haiti right now due to the earthquake? When Josh Sundquist found this out, he wanted to DO SOMETHING. This subject hits close to home for Josh, as he lost his left leg when he was 9 years old. Since then, Josh has gone on to accomplish amazing feats (he is a Paralympic ski racer!) and he wanted to instill some of that hope in Haitians who might be facing a new life after the earthquake.
The PSA that was produced was the brainchild of Luc Castera, a Haitian born entrepreneur who lives in Virginia. He saw Josh's videos on YouTube and thought his message would be an encouragement to those affected by the earthquake.
Luc has arranged for the video to be dubbed into Haitian Creole and shown as part of the Cinema Under the Stars, a mobile outdoor movie theater that brings entertainment and inspiration to rural Haitian communities.
The amputee video will be shown to tens of thousands of Haitians during 260 showings in 52 communities on Cinema Under the Stars’ current tour.
