Artists for Haiti was co-founded by Ben Stiller and David Zwirner, following a joint trip to Haiti a year after the devastating earthquake. The nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization awards grants to selected charities in support of children’s education and health initiatives in the country. Artists for Haiti hired Ciné Institute graduates to film institutional portraits of their beneficiaries including J/P Haitian Relief Organization. J/P HRO is a non-profit organization founded by the American actor Sean Penn in response to the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
