Bill Clinton Will Raise Funds for Haiti

Clinton reiterates commitment to impoverished Haiti - World -
Former President Bill Clinton on Sunday delivered to Haitian-Americans and emigres a mixed message of heartbreak and hope.

As the new U.N. envoy to Haiti, Clinton has focused his well-honed fundraising talents on Haitian relief. The former president announced he would head a trade mission there in October with international investors.

Clinton also said billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros' Soros Economic Development Fund was launching an equity investment program with an initial commitment of up to $25 million. The Haiti Invest Project's potential partners could immediately expand that amount to $150 million in manufacturing, agriculture, logistics, energy and tourism ventures.
