Let's raise funds to support the relief efforts in Haiti. Globys will match all donations by employees made to this page. Our goal is to raise $10,000.
Here's a little more info from Mercy Corp:
About three million people were affected by the earthquake. Haitian government officials are estimating death tolls in the thousands, and thousands more are living in the ruined streets of the country's capital.
Mercy Corps is deploying an emergency response team to the island nation.
Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, is plagued by hunger and political instability. This disaster will drastically increase the needs of families who had little to lose in the first place.
Families need your help -- food, shelter and other supplies -- in the aftermath of the worst disaster to strike the region in years.
Mercy Corps has a long history of helping earthquake survivors meet their immediate needs and recover what they've lost. We aided families after earthquakes in Peru in 2007, China and Pakistan in 2008, and Indonesia last year.
Over the last five years, we've allocated more than 89% of our resources directly to programs. America's premier charity evaluator gives Mercy Corps four stars in organizational efficiency.
