Wyclef Jean Room – Migrants that Change the World T-Shirt
Did you know that all our rooms are named after refugees and immigrants that changed the world? Our Wyclef Jean Room is named for the Haitian rapper, singer, songwriter and actor. At the age of nine, Jean immigrated to the United States with his family to flee the hard economic and social conditions in Haiti. He first achieved fame as a member of the New Jersey hip hop group the Fugees, alongside Lauryn Hill and Pras Michel. They released the albums Blunted on Reality (1994) and The Score (1996), the latter becoming one of the best-selling albums of all time.
In 2001, Jean established Yéle Haiti, a charitable organization known legally as the Wyclef Jean Foundation and incorporated in Illinois. Following 2004’s Hurricane Jeanne, the organization provided scholarships to 3,600 children in Gonaïves, Haiti. It continued to provide scholarships, school funding, meals and other charitable benefits to citizens of Haiti in the following years.
After the 2010 Haitian earthquake, Yéle became prominent in raising funds for disaster relief. According to Jean, Yéle raised over $1 million in 24 hours over Twitter. Thank you for changing the lives of many! #UmojaHouse #RefugeesWelcome
