We are extremely indebted to Kay Byers for nominating Big Paul for an Eagle Rare Life award.
Her gracious entry reads as follows:
Paul Sebring ( Big Paul ) is a talented and rising star in the world of Fashion Photography, but after the earthquake that rocked Haiti to its core, his world changed as well. Paul was at his desk in Arizona when he got the news of the earthquake, 10 days later Paul was in Haiti. Being an EMT many years ago, his instinct and memory led him to be one of the key players in developing MMRC, the Materials Management Relief Corps. From January to September of 2010 Paul spent endless days and nights helping the people of Haiti become stronger through medical and personal support. Paul and his team, which includes Paul Waggoner ( Little Paul ) have helped countless numbers of orphanes and familes in need. Their organization is dedicated to helping the people of Haiti, Paul and many more volunteers will be traveling back to Haiti to continue their work and develop many more programs to help the people of Haiti. MMRC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping medical on the ground in Haiti, creating an effective EMS and search and resuce program, and their most beloved project, identifying and supporting orphanages in need of food, shelter, clothing, education and vaccines.MMRC has been working solely off of donations and funds are becoming less and less available, its my hope that MMRC, Paul and his team can continue the great work they have begun, and continue working on their passion of helping the Haitain people.
