It’s fairly unnecessary to recap the events of Haiti’s devastating earthquake last week, in yet another tedious blog post. I’m sure you’ve heard the news by now (and if not, turn to a more credible organization for your facts, not a blog.) Truth is, the details of the ‘quake don’t matter nearly as much as the actions we take to help support the relief efforts.
We all wish we could jump on a plane and go volunteer, but those official guys keep saying the best thing we can do is donate. So, let’s donate…but how? Personally, I’m not too keen on the whole ‘Text to Donate’ deal, partly because I think AT&T are shiesters, and partly because there are much cooler ways of doing it. Here are a bunch of awesome ways you can donate:
Etsy Shop for Haiti
Etsy has teamed up with DoctorsWithoutBorders to create an Etsy shop of all donated items. 100% of the profits go to support DoctorsWithoutBorders relief efforts in Haiti. If you have items you would like to donate to the shop, send an email to etsyforhaiti [at] gmail.com for a copy of the donation guidelines. Click here to visit the Hearts for Haiti store.
