As most realize, Haiti was hit hard by an earthquake yesterday leaving the area in ruins and devastation. On my website I support an organization called Makarios. Makarios provides education and support to those in the Haitian areas. It also provides land for fair trade coffee cultivation. Last night as the earthquakes were shaking the country apart, their director Sharla mentioned that it would be easier to sleep if the after shocks weren’t so bad. However, she was truly thankful for a bed and roof over her head unlike so many of the locals.
Right now they are purchasing supplies to take over to Haiti, they have set up a paypal account to accept donations to help with the purchase of these supplies.
Other ways to help are donating to the American Red Cross and other organizations as you can see here.
