Hi there. I have been researching for both myself and you lovelies, how we can help Haiti (for more information on this horrible disaster, go to www.cnn.com) . Any little bit counts. Here are some ways to help.
1. Donate through your local Red Cross. If you are in the Philadelphia area, click here.
2. Donate through Wyclef’s charity “YELE” www.yele.org THIS is really neat, as you can donate $5 via your cell phone by texting YELE to 501501.
More about YELE (from the site)
About Yele Haiti and Yele Vert
Yele Haiti is a grassroots movement that builds global awareness for Haiti while helping to transform the country through programs in education, sports, the arts and environment. Yele’s community service programs include food distribution and mobilizing emergency relief.
The Yele Vert program combines community based agroforestry, environmental education and social marketing into a new and sustainable program of tree planting, agricultural improvement and environmental restoration.
GrammyAward-winning musician, humanitarian and Goodwill Ambassador to Haiti Wyclef Jean founded Yele Haiti in 2005. For more information please go to www.yele.org.
3. Also, apparently (set up prior to this horrible disaster), the shoe Chain Villa (www.ruvilla.com) inthe Philadelphia area is helping out as well
(taken from their site) Highlighting the partnership is a collection of boots that debuted this week under the popular Timberland Earthkeepers(TM) line. For every pair of Earthkeepers(TM) Yele Haiti boots sold, $2 will be donated to Wyclef’s Yele Haiti organization to support reforestation in Haiti. The collection of eco-conscious footwear, made from recycled and organic materials, will be available globally for men, women and kids. VILLA is the first location in the Philadelphia area to be carrying the Yele Haiti collection.
See www.yele.org for more info on this charity
PLEASE JOIN ME AND DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING TO HELP. Read and React.
Thank you. Toodles.
