Peapod Represents Haiti, Bernal in the House
Peapod is a worldwide youth music program started by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. Last year they worked with the Adobe Foundation to open branches in Oakland and Redwood City that give kids access to video and music production equipment.
In addition to mentoring in the performing arts, youth participants will receive structured multi-media training in video, audio, photography, design and art, enabling them to creatively express their points of view on vital issues and contribute to social change in their communities.
The aim of the campaign is to nurture self-expression, creativity, community involvement, and digital literacy among young people — the kind of education these organizations feel is critical for today’s youth.
The Redwood City kids wisely chose the top of Bernal as a location for their rather awesome “Stand Up For Haiti” video to support earthquake relief efforts.

Note that Partners in Health (PIH) is the Burrito Justice approved vector for Haiti donations. The rainy season is about to start and they need all the help they can get.
