Please help Heartwood and Mercy Corps raise money for the survivors and relief efforts in Haiti. Any amount you can give is appreciated!
Mercy Corps emergency response teams are responding to help survivors. The tax deductible donations go directly to MercyCorps, and funds are used immediately. MercyCorps is a non-profit organization who has responded to dozens of disasters like this in the past (such as earthquakes in Peru in 2007; in Pakistan and China in 2008; and in Padang, Indonesia last year).
Heartwood is happy to support Mercy Corps because they are forwarding innovative ideas, such as their "work-for-cash program." The idea is to get the Haitian people fully engaged in their own recovery, so Mercy Corps hires the locals to clean up their neighborhoods and in return receive a wage. The wage then allows the locals to buy what they need - instead of being dependent on assistance from aid organizations. It allows them to stand on their own feet, and the result is not only a quick recovery, but extremely positive effects on survivors' emotional and psychological well-being. Genius!
Thank you and God Bless everyone who is doing their part to help.
Also, please pass the link along to anyone who you think might be interested in giving.
