Blaine finishes fundraiser, Clark finds devastation

January 19th, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under David Blaine, General

Two magicians have been helping with disaster relief efforts for the people of Haiti. Yesterday, David Blaine finished his 72-hour street magic to raise funds for the American Red Cross. Kevin Reylek, of the New York Magic Project, sent some great pics that you should check out.

James L. Clark, meanwhile is in the thick of it in Haiti. According to his Facebook page, he is in Port-au-Prince, the largest city closest to the earthquake’s epicenter and the site of the worst devastation. He is helping rescue people, finding survivors and assisting doctors with surgeries. Unfortunately, some of his supplies are even stuck in customs. Here’s his two latest Facebook posts:

Haiti update: Just got access to the internet. In Port-au-Prince in area called Dalmas 40A. Lots to report, but limited time. See the photos. Harold and I are safe. Dan is working down to us. Treating people, but very short on resources. Need antibiotics (BAD), surgical kits (BAD), and other supplies. Please continue to help raise funds.

In from James team: Very trying day today, but at the end of the day, it was successful. We were involved in a 45 min car chase that ended at a French hospital, when we off loaded 3 critically wounded people. 2 were pulled from the rubble after 7 days. Took 3 hrs to find a hospital that would take them. Another long day tomorrow, trying to pick up 2,200 lbs of supplies that customs seized today. Need prayer for that.

You can still donate to Clark’s trip on his Web page.
