We have secured some land down in Haiti and we're building houses out of shipping containers that are weatherproof
Acting pals Balthazar Getty and Patricia Arquette have teamed up to create a new charity venture in a bid to provide homes for the survivors of the Haiti earthquake.
The stars and Getty's wife Rosetta Millington are the brains behind GiveLove.org - a non-profit organisation geared towards helping the homeless.
The Brothers and Sisters star explains, "We have secured some land down in Haiti and we're building houses out of shipping containers that are weatherproof... You can donate and help us build homes for these people who really need our help right now. "The big problem now is the hurricane season that's coming and the rainseason that's coming and the fact that these people are just set up in these makeshift tents (made) out of sticks and wood and tape, and this stuff can't withstand the weather". Getty and Arquette aren't the only stars doing what they can for the survivors of the earthquake - Demi Moore, Sean Penn and Ben Stiller are among the celebrities currently on the ground in Haiti and Eva Longoria Parker has been applauded by charity groups for helping raise funds for sturdy tents to protect locals from the storms.
