Helping Haiti - Quick Links
Josh Chambers, Former Viget
As you know, Haiti was recently devastated by a 7.0 earthquake, followed by over two dozen 4.5 - 5.0 quakes (latest updates here). This blog post is just to give you some quick links to where you can help - we're not interested in site visits, and we won't be publicizing this post (except that it will probably get tweeted by our bot). However, we do have somewhat of a microphone in the form of a blog, and if you found yourself perusing our site or your RSS feed, we hope this will inspire you to help out in whatever way you can. Here are a few trustworthy NGOs accepting donations (while texting is a great feature, I believe some of those funds go to the cell carrier. If you're able, giving online is a bit more effective).
Our former client Razoo has implemented a grant matching campaign - their match capability is currently $12,300. There are dozens of non-profits to choose from (including most of those originally linked to below), so please check it out if you are able to give financially.
- International Rescue Committee
- Red Cross
- Doctors Without Borders
- Salvation Army
- Numana (If you're in Kansas, this is a friend of mine who is organizing a food packaging event. You can also support them financially at $0.30 / meal)
If you feel like spreading the word, your efforts would be best used by linking directly to one of the above Non-Profits, not this post.
