Haiti Disaster Relief
On Tuesday a massive 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti knocking out electricity, collapsing buildings and taking an estimated 50,000 lives. Funds are needed to help provide food, water and medical supplies to the over three million people affected by this tragedy and we want to help. We will match any donation given through our Mercy Corps page so please consider giving anything you can to help with the disaster relief.
