2010 Haiti earthquake efforts
After the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Jean-Louis went to Haiti to search for his elderly parents in Haiti the day after a powerful earthquake struck the nation. Jean-Louis learned that a house he had grown up in collapsed, killing several of his relatives. He is the founder of Hollywood Unites for Haiti, a non-profit charitable aid organization whose original mission was to provide sports and cultural education to underprivileged youth on the island. The group mobilized for disaster relief after the magnitude-7 earthquake struck. Recently, Jean-Louis has taken part in a series of campaigns for Haitian aid, such as singing in the "We Are The World" remake of the original for Haiti in February 2010 which aired during the start of the Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada.

Après la trahison du consul Bonaparte, devenu alors Napoléon en 1804, Saint- Domingue prend le nom de Haïti, car Toussaint, au prix de sa vie aura fait de son pays le premier Etat nègre indépendant où l'esclavage est enfin banni.
