Many of us are following the devastating news about the human tragedy in Haiti as a result of yesterday’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck near Haiti’s capital of Port-au-Prince. The extent of the devastation is still unfolding — but there are fears of catastrophic damage and widespread casualties. The earthquake exacerbates an already dire humanitarian situation in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Many of us are driven to do what we can to make a difference, so I’d like to share one easy way that you can help.
One of the PR agencies we work with, Waggener Edstrom, works with Mercy Corps, a global humanitarian organization that immediately sent a team of emergency responders to the region. You can read more about Mercy Corps, and get live updates from their team in Haiti here.
We're sharing this information with you as we believe that contributing to the relief effort is one simple way that we can all help make a difference for those suffering in Haiti. You can click on the "ads" on the top and side of this page to go directly to the Mercy Corps' donation pages.
Thank you in advance for your support and contributions.
