Adam Levine Is Hosting SNL + Helping Haiti This Weekend

Adam Levine might be spending this Saturday night live from New York, but it’s clear his heart is with the people of Haiti. He’s no stranger to lending his talents to a good cause, but he’s taking his support to the next level by helping Haiti’s earthquake victims.

Even though it’s been three years since the devastating earthquake just off the coast of Port-au-Prince, Haiti still needs our help. For those a little hazy on the details, Aid Still Required reports that after the earthquake hit, more than 230,000 people died with millions more injured. Only 5% of the rubble from the devastation has been removed, and close to one million people are living under makeshift tarps and tents.

With this in mind, Aid Still Required has partnered with Maroon 5 and Waka Waka Light (they sell solar LED lamps) for the organization’s most recent campaign: Aid Still Required: Haiti. Adam and his bandmates are hoping to help ASR raise $50,000 before the campaign ends in 3 days. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to programs on the ground in Haiti.

For this particular campaign, ASR is hoping to help those living in the Wharf Jeremie section of the Cite Soleil slum with trauma relief for victims of violence and PTSD, home gardening and solar-powered lamps. For every Waka Waka light sold during the campaign, Waka Waka Light will donate two lights to ASR.

Adam Levine and Maroon 5 aren’t the only celebs joining in to help Haiti. Other noteworthy names include Ian Somerhalder, Usher, Alicia Keys, Janet Jackson, Ricky Martin, Nina Dobrev, Solange Knowles, and Victoria Justice. A bunch of other musicians, athletes, and television/film stars have all pledged their support too and now it’s up to us.
