On January 12, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. Join recovery efforts mobilizing around the world to assist earthquake victims. Your donation will help disaster victims rebuild their lives and their communities.
It be yer choice where, how and how much to donate – but everything, no matter how little it seems to ye, is of help. If everyone in a small town of 20,000 people donated even $1, imagine how much good that could do! Yer donations go toward food, fresh water, clothing, shelter, transport to safety, equipment to rescue people, medical aid and more. Ye can even volunteer yer time to help with relief efforts (onsite is grand, but encouraging others to help out locally is just as important).
The important thing to remember is the PEOPLE in Haiti – families who need yer help NOW…every little bit helps, even if it’s just a prayer!
“Papa Legba, ouvrier barriere por moi passer” – may the Loa & their ancestors give strength to the people of Haiti!
