The lead actor for Ghanaian film maker, Leila Djansi’s upcoming psychological drama, ‘Sinking Sands’ was recently spotted looking simple and fly in Puma apparel at the Peace One Day concert in Paris. The famed Haiti actor took to the stage on behalf of PUMA.Peace to talk about the One Day One Goal campaign. The Peace One Day, One Day One Goal is a campaign to encourage football matches around the world on September 21 – the international day of ceasefire known as Peace Day.
The goal of ODOG is to harness the power of the beautiful game to encourage peace and cooperation. Sport has the ability to cut across all geographic, ethnicities and politics and enable greater understanding and respect. Many of these football matches strengthen and support peace building efforts in regions previously in conflict.
Jimmy Jean-Louis was proud to announce that over 3,000 soccer matches were held in honor of this year’s Peace Day, with games in all 192 UN member states. A game that was of special importance to Jimmy Jean-Louis was the match played in his native Haiti. His excitement was contagious and the crowd clamoured for the soccer balls he threw into the crowd to support ODOG.
Jimmy can soon be seen in the movie ‘Sinking Sands’ which can ultimately be seen as a campaign against domestic abuse in any form.
