Even though my classmates were found safe, I'm still shaken up from the experience of not knowing where they were and having a nightmare about them Thursday morning. One of them called me when he got back to the U.S. and the other is still in the Dominican Republic because they got separated in the crush of people in the airport. I'll feel better when I actually see them. A word of caution, be careful about just throwing money out to organizations. Know where your money is going. It's also often better to donate to an organization than to give supplies because supplies have to be shipped at an additional cost which means less money to spend on actual supplies. There are organizations that buy in Haiti (or whatever the effected country is) as a way to also stimulate the local economy and provide aid at the same time. Former President Clinton has a foundation and I'm thinking of donating to Doctors Without Borders.
I have a shoot for my film in Miami on Monday (bummer, right? Lol) so I'm going down to Palm Beach tomorrow to kick it with Stace in the interim. I want to visit the kinders, too so they can see how awesome Miss Jameil is! Ow! You know what I'm most focused on though, right? FOOD!! I can't wait to eat some awesomeness!! I want sushi since we always eat that together, I wouldn't mind some Mexican and I think we can team up to do some great things in the kitchen! I know we can! This is gonna be great. I can get some work done, see my homie, eat some great food and relax.
