News and information out of Haiti is difficult to get because of the magnitude of the disaster from Tuesday's earthquake. What we do know is the situation in Haiti is likely one of the worst humanitarian disasters in recent memory. Hundreds of thousands are likely dead, the Capitol infrastructure is destroyed, and people are desperate for basic necessities like food, water, and shelter.
The Rainbow World Fund is an LGBT organization that provides humanitarian relief around the world. They partnered with CARE and already have people in Haiti providing relief. The Rainbow World Fund pledged $35,000 to help in Haiti but they want to do more.
So do I. I know our community can do more and will do more. Please take a moment and contribute what you can to the Rainbow World Fund. Visit the Rainbow World Fund's website to contribute today. If you want your money to go towards their efforts in Haiti please indicate that on your donation by marking it "Haiti."
Thank you for your help. Let's hope the people of Haiti who have been devastated by poverty for generations emerge stronger than before this awful tragedy.
