Many, many thanks to everyone who responded so generously to our Haiti relief collection efforts. We got a huge amount of donated supplies, which were packed up on Wednesday, and should be on the plane heading down by this weekend. Thanks again everyone, and especially to Jay O’Berski for getting this organized so quickly.
Here’s a short article on Durham Magzine’s website about Jay’s Haiti experiences.
If you didn’t get to donate to this effort, there are still a lot of ways you can help out. You can make an immediate (and absolutely secure) $10 donation for Haiti relief through the American Red Cross via your cell phone. Just text the word “Haiti” to 90999.
