Heroes for Haiti

I began this fundraiser because I want to do something to help, and I'm hoping others will feel the same.

Donate what you would've spent on coffee this morning, takeout for dinner tonight, or whatever small luxury you feel you could go without today in order to help those truly in need.

I researched charities accepting donations for Haiti and decided on Oxfam America because of their long history of helping fight poverty in Haiti.  More information about Oxfam can be found here:

In their words, this is their plan for where funds received will be applied:

A major earthquake has struck Haiti's capital city of Port-Au-Prince. It is a catastrophe of major proportions. Multiple buildings have collapsed, including a hospital, a hotel, and the UN building.

Oxfam has long experience in Haiti, and we're rushing in teams from around the region to respond to the situation where our assistance is most needed. Our response will include providing clean water, shelter, sanitation and helping people recover – your donation will go immediately to the most critical needs in Haiti, and we will ensure that every penny is used wisely.

Please make a generous tax-deductible gift right now to the Haiti Earthquake Response Fund and help us save lives.

Thank you for your donation, and please share this link with anyone who might be sitting in their cubicles right now wondering what they can do to help.
