I'm Madeleine Stowe. You may know me most recently as Victoria Grayson Golden Goose Sneakers Sale on ABC's Revenge. While I've seen many things in my 30 years as an actor, I wanted to share the indelible experience of my trip to Haiti just before Christmas.

I first went to Haiti more than a year before the devastating quake that shook the Golden Goose Sneakers tiny country, killing over 300,000 people in seconds.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis gathered together a small group of friends, myself included, we took the trip, and after which, we formed Artists For Peace and Justice (APJ).

APJ supports the stunning education, medical, and social efforts of a local Doctor and priest, Father Richard Frechette at his Haitian-run St. Luke organization.

They've served for 25 years, reaching the poorest and often forgotten areas of the nation ' places in the Cite Soleil that even the U.N. fears and won't step foot in ' and continue their efforts to rebuild the devastated country. Together, we've opened the only free secondary school in Haiti.

Now, nearly three years after my first of multiple trips, I decided to head back to the fragile Caribbean country I've been unable to forget since the day I first touched ground there.
