I was contacted by a representative from Soles4Souls yesterday and asked if I would be willing to blog about this campaign. What better way to start off 2010 then helping those in need. Please donate if you can. I've pasted info direct from their website below.
Soles4Souls: Project Haiti Relief
Soles4Souls is mounting a massive response of emergency relief to the victims of Tuesday’s 7.0-magnitude earthquake near Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince. 3 million people are directly affected by the damage. Untold thousands are likely dead, and tens of thousands are injured. Probably hundreds of thousands have lost their homes and most of their possessions.
Why shoes are critical
People are in immediate need of the most basic necessities, like food, water, AND SHOES. Soles4Souls is working with trusted partners to provide hundreds of thousands of new boots and shoes to help survivors locate others trapped in the rubble and begin the rebuilding process. As you can imagine, the amount of broken glass, twisted metal and raw sewage is staggering. We will rush this protective footwear to them as quickly as possible.
In fact, we are partnering with others to send a shipment of 30 container loads of emergency supplies, including:
New boots and shoes
Food & Water
How you can help
Please help us meet this urgent need by giving now. Your donation will help survivors in Haiti work in the midst of the rubble to rebuild their lives.
