If you're here you probably got an email from me. Mercy Corps is one of the high quality relief organizations. It is well run and gets 87% of donations "on the ground." It also leverages the $$ in ways that most relief organizations do not by helping people help themselves and by sticking around after CNN has departed.

Please consider a donation today.
Thanks,
Mark

************************************************************

As international relief efforts continue in Haiti, a Mercy Corps earthquake response team is in Port-au-Prince responding to urgent needs.

Your donation will help families in Haiti recover from the most powerful quake to hit the country in more than 200 years.

Mercy Corps relief workers with experience in disaster responses ranging from Hurricane Katrina to the Myanmar cyclone are converging on Haiti from Africa, Asia, and North America.

They're focusing first on the immediate needs -- for water, food, temporary shelter supplies and much more -- and expanding our work to three areas: clean water, post-trauma support for children and job creation.

The needs in Haiti are immense. Its capital lies in ruins, as many as 200,000 may be dead, and survivors are increasingly desperate for food, clean water and shelter. Please give what you can to help families recover.

Follow the latest updates at mercycorps.org/haiti, on our Facebook page, and by following us on Twitter.

Thank you!
