There are Many Ways to Make A Difference - Haiti

By
Real Estate Agent with Harrison Hot Springs, Cultus Lake

Don't know how to help with the devastation that has happened in Haiti?

"Given the catastrophic events that occurred in Haiti, Doubletake Clothing wants to do something to help the 3 million people affected by the earthquake. No words can describe what the Haitian population is going through right now.|"

All proceeds will go to several Haiti Earthquake Relief Organizations including the UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders, and CSI Ministries. Doubletake Clothing is taking care of all domestic shipping costs (free shipping!) and reduced international shipping to $5.

I thought buying one of these for each of my kids - or maybe for a whole classroom - might spread the word. Click here for more info:  Doubletake Clothing for Haiti.

Hi Liz-The non-profit organization I am working for also is gearing up to send supplies to Haiti. We are collecting supplies outside a store today and tomorrow and Saturday at Sam's and again next week. I just got home from the store and picked up 4 cases of water, mops, brooms, clorox and paper towel. Thank you for this post. Have a great evening. <SMILE>

Liz, I didn't know about the tee shirts but they look like a wonderful idea.  I have already donated and will be donating more; it's almost hard to believe that type of destruction.

At the moment cash is most urgently needed.  World Vision is urging people to donate $10.00. Here's are links where you can do this. One for WV Canada, and one for WV USA.

Liz,

Good post. I've sone a few as well. Too bad we couldn't coordinate something Active Rain wide. Almost 200,000 members.

Liz, this is a great way to help! If I had not already donated all that I am able, I would get a few.

Liz - Every little bit helps but directing a donation through a purchase (unless you were going to purchase the item any way) reduces the amount of good your money can do. How much of the $15 or #20 dollars you expend will actually be going to Haiti.

"This shirt is the $20 option for those who wish to give more to Haiti. The $15 option is available here. This $20 shirt allows you to donate an additional $5 over the $15 shirt."

"Doubletake Clothing is not charging any overhead (we make $0!) and all domestic shipping costs are included! "

While they are not "making any money" they will be generating a tax deduction. A better way is to donate the $20 through an organization that will be able to double that with the help of CIDA.

Liz, thanks for sharing some of the options to help. Sometimes people want to give but don't know how or where to go. Very helpful. Hopefully we can all rally and send support to the survivors the this disaster.
