hurricane help

Lots of people in lots of places need lots of help right now.

Sometimes it's hard to know where to funnel your resources so they will do the most good for the most people.

We happen to know some of these people personally - so if you want to make sure you're contributing in a way that will be most beneficial - we can recommend this:

If you are wanting to donate money to help the people of Haiti recover from the devastation of Hurricane Matthew - I have a couple of ideas for you.
SAKALA - a grassroots, Haitian-led organization - is collecting funds to respond to #HurricaneMatthew in Cite Soleil by repairing homes and supplying clean water in the face of a likely spike in cholera. They do amazing work. If you want the money to go to other amazing Haitian run and led organizations, we will make sure it gets to amazing people doing amazing work. You can donate to SAKALA or The Haiti Justice Alliance (c/o Paul Miller, 2118 Erie Dr., Northfield, MN 55057) Please give what you can. The Haiti Justice Alliance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and your donations are tax deductible.

SAKALA was founded in 2006. 10 years later, we're still going strong fostering peace and possibilities in the neighborhoods of Cite Soleil and the world beyond.

Thanks, J. I can promise you that money donated will go directly to the people on the ground doing amazing work - no money taken out for overhead, salaries, etc. The people of Haiti are beautiful people. I appreciate you sharing this.
