Holly J., Fiona, The Bhandaris, Eli, Clare and all the rest of the Degrassi students have ditched their uniforms, packed their bags, and left their drama in the halls of Degrassi to make new halls for kids in Haiti.
Check out exclusive content from Degrassi in Haiti that you won’t find anywhere else!
Don’t miss Degrassi In Haiti as part of MuchMusic’s Holiday Wrap, airing December 30th at 6PM ET exclusively on MuchMusic!
The cast of Degrassi is helping to create a brand new school in Haiti and we’ve got it all documented right here on MuchMusic! Aptly named Degrassi In Haiti, the special follows all your favourite Degrassi actors as they encounter the heat, sweat, tears, fears and unforgettable experiences while creating something truly special for kids less fortunate.
And there’s more…
They wanted to let you know what that experience meant for them. Stuff you won’t find in the special! We asked five fun (and poignant!) questions about the best moments of the trip. Here’s what Justin Kelly had to say about his experience in Haiti.
1. What is one essential item you packed for your trip?
The one essential item for me was sunscreen. Layers and layers of sunscreen.
2. What is one thing you learned about another cast member?
That Jessica Tyler talks in her sleep…
3. Who is the best travel partner?
Spencer Van Wyck
4. What was your most important moment on the trip?
There is no one specific moment, but something that stood out was bonding with the boys from the orphanage.
5. How do you describe Haiti and your trip to friends?
It was an extraordinary, eye-opening adventure that I would find too hard to do justice to by just explaining it.
Check out Justin recreating his favourite scene from Crazy, Stupid, Love with Munro Chambers and ‘encouraging’ Melinda Shankar in her painting.
