FULL Transcript of Robert Pattinson's Hope for Haiti Speech


MTV's Hollywood Crush just posted an article about Rob's segment on the telethon:

While aid efforts for Haiti began shortly after the earthquake, tonight, some of Hollywood's biggest stars got together to bring further awareness to the cause. Amonst them was "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson, who stressed the importance of technology during this crisis.

(see Robert's full speech after the jump)

Robert, who appeared on camera from London, shared the story of a girl in Haiti who had been buried under a flattened university for nearly six days, praying that someone would find her. Finally, on the sixth day, rescuers discovered her because of a text message sent from underneath the rubble.

Amazing.

The story was just one example of how technology, including Twitter, Facebook and texting, has shaped the response to the earthquake in Haiti.

Here is Rob's speech in full:

"Underneath a flattened university, Maxine Fallon waited. She was crouched in a fetal position and could barely move. In the darkness and during the hectic sounds of the day, through the pain, the hunger and thrist, she prayed that someone would find her. And on the sixth day her prayers were answered, she was found because of a text message from the rubble sent rescuers to her side. Unlike any other event in history, our world has been connected to this tragedy because of technology. Twitter updates, Facebook pages with pictures of the missing and text messages for help. This technology is working right now to connect us, too. At hopeforhaitinow.org, you can donate and you can instantly interact with people in Haiti and anywhere in the globe. Join with those watching and see what they're saying about something we all care deeply about — helping the Haitian people get back on their feet. Please go to hopeforhaitinow.org. Thank you."

Good for Rob ! I think it's so generous
for him to be in such an important foundation
he's helping people !
another reason why we MUST love him :)

Also I must add... about the beard thing...
I still love him of course ... but it's weird to hear a voice of a 23 year old guy
and seeing a 40 year old guy in front of you :P
I personally like him more without the beard...
thankfully Breaking Dawn is coming and we can't have an Edward with beard LOL
THAT will freak out the fans xD

Just like Kristen had to cut her hair for role. I am sure that he has to prepare for his role in Bel Ami. Also he had some down time and one thing that guys hate to do is shave.

He looks like a bible character but I am so proud of him for doing this....

yeah, I don't like the beard, but I guess that he doesn't really have time to shave. Oh well. Love him anyway!
