This is a chance to get involved and see where your donation goes!

I am a paramedic/firefighter in the Denver area.  Along with many of you, I have been moved by the immense need for so many things in Haiti.

I have decided to take personal action.

On March 2, 2010, I will be headed to Haiti with a team from International Medical Relief. International Medical Relief is a local non-profit organization that provides medical care in disaster situations. More information on this great organization can be found here: http://www.imrhq.org/. In Haiti, I will be working in clinics and field hospitals, utilizing my skills as a firefighter/paramedic to aid in recovery efforts.

This page is dedicated to raising the $2000 I need to cover the cost of this trip. Please know that any donation amount comes with very heartfelt thanks. Thank you in advance!

Check back, as I'll post a link here soon to a blog where you can follow my progress.

Lastly, I have drawn motivation from the below quote, often (and perhaps wrongly) attributed to Emerson: "To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded."

I intend to carry this motivation with me, in addition to the support of you all.

Thank you,

Dan
