Relief in Haiti

I have a lot of feelings about the devastation the people in Haiti are currently facing, but feelings can't possibly do what dollars can in disasters of this magnitude. A colleague of mine was in Port-au-Prince when the earthquake struck and will continue traveling there over the next many months to help his family navigate the destruction. I cannot imagine managing that sort of experience, but this is one small way to help him and the thousands of people and families affected.

Aside from my own personal contributions, I will be donating 50% of all sales at www.ohginger.com to relief efforts in Haiti from January 16th through January 23rd. At that point I will reassess and quite possibly continue the contributions at a larger scale. I will keep you posted as to where the money ultimately goes, and I will be keeping the needs of my colleague and his family in mind and consulting with him about the the best way to share the contributions.
