Today marks the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake that ravaged the Caribbean island nation of Haiti. The disaster, which killed a quarter-million people, left nearly a half-million injured and more than a million homeless, inspired a massive response from the entertainment community. Some of the worlds biggest entertainers -- from Madonna and Justin Timberlake to Beyonce and Bruce Springsteen -- turned out to contribute their voices to the 'Hope For Haiti Now' telethon and charity album, which reportedly netted more than $66 million for a variety of charities, including the United Nations World Food Programme, Red Cross, OXFAM America, Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and UNICEF.

But no celebrity worked harder in support of the Haitian people than Sean Penn, PopEater's Celebrity Humanitarian of 2010, who spent the majority of last year living in a tent in the island nation and serving as a camp manager in a temporary, makeshift city on the grounds of what was once the Petionville Golf Club in Port-au-Prince. Penn spoke to us via e-mail in December about where the recovery efforts stand and what the future holds for the ravaged country.
