About Perri Pierre and Reach Out WorldWide.
Perri Pierre was born in New York City on December 28th, 1988, but lived in Les Cayes, a small town in the south of Haiti from the ages of two to seventeen. There he attended FOJ from grade one to twelve. In 2006, he moved back to New York to attend university, graduating from Queens College – City University of New York in 2010, with a Bachelor’s degree in Drama and Theatre. Since then, he has produced and acted in several films, winning several awards.
Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) is a network of committed professionals with first responder skill-set. The volunteers provide their expertise when disasters strike, augmenting local resources with the goal of accelerating relief efforts. They operate on a worldwide basis. ROWW has developed Standard Operating Procedures that facilitate arriving quickly, clearing access, providing basic necessities and medical assistance to ease survivors' pain, bringing hope in the bleakest of circumstances. Paul Walker founded the group after he was part of a relief team responding to the to the disaster brought forth by the earthquakes that struck Haiti.
Perri Pierre is very grateful to Leapfrog and Reach out Worldwide for their donations, and thanks Paul Walker’s brother Cody and sister-in-law Felicia Walker for making this happen.
Parker Mckenna Posey from “My Wife and Kids” will be among Mr. Pierre’s guests at that party.
This is the first Christmas party that Perri has held for the kids, though he hopes to continue the event as a tradition every year, to bring holiday joy and cheer to the children.
