Before attending the 23rd annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, celebrities were invited to a benefit for Haitian children, sponsored by Canadian toy company MEGA Brands, called “Rebuilding Haiti one MEGA Blok at a time.” Hosted by Melanie Segal’s Platinum Publicity at the Magic Castle in Hollywood, USA, participants were given picture frames to personally autograph and decorate for an April auction to raise donations for Haiti through the non-profit organization Save the Children’s Emergency Response Fund. Among the many caring attendees were Oscar-nominated vegan actor Eric Roberts, who is also the brother of Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts; Haitian-born former NBA player Olden Polynice; and talented young television actors such as Ashley Argota, Josh Moore, and Douglas Smith.
