Actor Marie Eusebe

It’s been two years since Marie Eusebe quit her corporate job to form the non-profit organization Community2Community. While starring in Lorey Hayes’ Haiti’s Children Of God, Eusebe also an actor, experienced an epiphany in regards to the devastation brought on by earthquake on January 12, 2010. So moved by the devastation she gave up her safe daytime livelihood at American Express to raise funds to build a water reservoir in Petite Goâve. Petite Goâve is the home town of her father.

Marie’s unwavering dedication and sacrifice has garnered support from the entertainment industry.

First Hattie Winston and her husband, Harold Wheeler have joined forces with Community2Community. In case you didn’t know, Harold Wheeler uses his talents in orchestration (garnered over many years orchestrating sold out Tony Award winning musicals) as the musical director for the popular show Dancing With The Stars.

Award winning playwright Lorey Hayes along with actor Glynn Turman who played the mayor in the HOB series The Wire and his beautiful wife JoAnn are also on board in the Rebuilding Of The Heart & Souls Of the People Of Haiti.

In a two part series, Hattie Winston and Marie Eusebe sat down at the Lunch Counter on Febone1960.net to talk about this humanitarian endeavor.

One of the topics of conversation was the 2nd Annual “Hope and A Future” Benefit Concert for Haïti. This year’s benefit concert which is scheduled for January 13, 2012 features Haitian Kompa sensation, CARIMI, Multiplatinum Recording Artist, OLETA ADAMS, and Grammy Award Winner, CHRISETTE MICHELE, featuring the “Friends of Haïti”.
