mtv.com caught up with Joe Jonas on Friday at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Appropriately, however, no topic was more important for them to discuss than the recent tragedy in Haiti. Joe Jonas went on to talk about how this event has touched him deeply…
I think I might go, to do some relief work. I’m going to try; I’m going to try to get there.
Other celebs discussing their efforts to help Haiti at Friday’s awards show included Kevin Bacon and Sandra Bullock. Joe, however, said that simply contributing a check wasn’t enough for him.
[I can get there] either this Tuesday or, like, two or three weeks from now. I can’t promise I’m going to go, but I’m going to try. I really want to be able to support in any way I can; I was going to go to Haiti before, to do similar work there. But now it’s obviously a completely different thing and my heart goes out to those people there and the families and everything.
With sincerity in his voice, Joe sent out a special message to the troubled area of the world and its residents.
I just pray that everybody’s all right, and I’m going to try and do my best by getting there. And I would definitely say, if anyone can give money or support, it’s the perfect way to do it.
George Clooney and Wyclef Jean will host MTV’s “Hope for Haiti” telethon, airing commercial-free this Friday starting at 8 p.m. (ET).
