After a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti in January, people around the world quickly came together to aid the underprivileged country in its time of need.
Now, two months after the quake, Oxfam has hit the $100 million mark in donations — money that will go towards the rebuilding of Haiti. We’re pleased to have been one of Oxfam’s partners in raising this much needed support.
Haiti’s President René Préval is in Washington D.C. today, giving thanks to those who have shown compassion for Haiti. The donations received are helping the country to recover — but now it’s time to think about Haiti’s future. Preval suggests donations such as seeds instead of food, so that Haiti can grow its own food.
Thank you to all Care2 members who have helped Haiti. All your efforts, big and small, make a difference.
