Haiti Needs Our Help

The situation in Haiti is obviously desperate. From the Haitian president, Rene Preval:

“Parliament has collapsed. The tax office has collapsed. Schools have collapsed. Hospitals have collapsed. There are a lot of schools that have a lot of dead people in them.”

Please donate what you can to one of the relief organizations on the ground. Our family is donating $25 to Oxfam.

The American Red Cross
"Red Cross sees immediate needs for food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support."

Partners in Health
"With our hospitals and our highly trained medical staff in place in Haiti, Partners In Health is already mobilizing resources and preparing plans to bring medical assistance and supplies to areas that have been hardest hit. In Boston, our procurement and development teams are already fielding numerous offers of support and making arrangements to deliver resources as quickly as possible to the places where they are needed most."

Oxfam America
"Oxfam has long experience in Haiti, and we're rushing in teams from around the region to respond to the situation where our assistance is most needed. Our response will include providing clean water, shelter, sanitation and helping people recover. Your donation will go immediately to the most critical needs in Haiti, and we will ensure that every penny is used wisely."
