Tigeorges became a focal point of local relief efforts after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti in January 12, 2010. The fundraiser at his restaurant netted $14,000 and attracted TV cameras and politicians figures such as Council President Eric Garcetti.

The majority of the proceeds went to the Yele Haiti Foundation, which was helping coordinate the delivery of emergency services and materials to aid in the earthquake relief.

After traveling to Haiti, Tigeorge realized that there are several great organizations in Haiti (such as Yele) who are focused on helping the Haitian people through the earthquake, but are not focusing on the deforestation issue in Haiti (something near and dear to his heart). Tigeorge opened the Tigeorges Foundation, a non-profit organization, focused on helping Haitian farmers
