OPERATION BABY FORMULA

The One Race Global Film Foundation is working to protect babies who are dying in orphanages in Haiti due to lack of proper food distribution by the Red Cross and UN. Based on our assessment on the ground, the quickest way to get formula to them is through an underground delivery system we have created.

For $150 (a 30% discount) we can buy a case of 24 canisters of baby formula direct from the distributor Mead Johnson in the Dominican Republic, which our students can drive across the border and personally guarantee gets delivered to orphanages. We have already shipped 100 cases that have arrived safely. 

If you would like to help, you can donate through our donations page.  All donations during this time period will get diverted to this cause.

Vin Diesel attended a meeting at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris today to present the launch of the One Race Global Film Foundation for Peace and Development.  The first initiative of this program, in collaboration with Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti and President Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic, brought Haitian student ambassadors to Santo Domingo to participate in the ORGFF’s Summer Intensive Institute.  The ORGFF for Peace and Development seeks to use film production as a tool for promoting conflict resolution and intercultural exchanges between nations historically at odds.

IN-SCHOOL PILOT PROGRAM 2009

DSC_3108 On September 12th, 2009 - the ORF, in collaboration with our co-sponsor the Global Foundation for Democracy & Development (FUNGLODE), was proud to initiate the launch of the In-School Pilot Program at the Mauricio Baez Cultural Center which services the neighborhood of Villa Juana in the Dominican Republic.

The goal of the In-School Program is to teach the fundamentals of production to students who otherwise would not have the resources or equipment to find their voice, to enhance concepts such as critical thinking and writing, and to develop a passion for filmmaking at an early age that can later be cultivated into a strong workforce for the Dominican film industry.
