I am going to rent all of Sean Penn 's movies and watch them on repeat. When this man has a cause, he sticks to it!

Nearly a year after the devastating earthquakes in Haiti, the Oscar winner is still in the country , which is now being devastated by cholera. He spent Christmas there, greeting children and working on his charity foundation, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, which operates right out of Port-au-Prince  -- in a tent city on a former golf course.  Yep, Sean is not in some stuffy office in the States. He is on the ground.

Penn, who is known for films like Mystic River and Milk , has been critical of organizations that claim they are helping Haiti but are nowhere to be found, especially the United Nations. Penn told MSNBC, "The amount we’re getting done, versus what they’re doing — which is nothing. Quite honestly, if you want something done, do it yourself.”

Tell it like it is Sean ... he also added that he will never leave Haiti, which is considered the first Black nation.  “This is where I’ll be when I’m not working, for the rest of my life.”
