After a week's collecting, we've totalled up $910 in donations! Thank you for your generous support. In the next few weeks we'll have information about a couple of sew-ins, hosted by one of our customers, to make baby and toddler blankets that will get sent to a specific orphanage in Haiti. We all saw the moving images of those lucky babies coming home to their American families. That joy here is equal to the sorrow remaining in Haiti as many more children have now become orphans.
Our two recipients of the donations we collected are the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund and the Kombit Sante Earthquake Response Fund. If you haven't already made a donation we encourage you to support one of these organizations.
