Sean Penn just got the ultimate seal of approval: President Clinton announced his support of Penn’s ongoing work in Haiti with a half a million-dollar donation.
The Clinton Foundation donated $500,000 to Penn’s charity, J/P Haitian Relief Organization. The money will provide for bridge funding for a camp in Petionville, which is run by the group.
