Haiti Relief Recommendations

As we emerge from the shock of Haiti's latest tragedy and try to find ways to be helpful in the midst of heart breaking devastatip, people are asking me for recommendations of relief organizations to support. I know some of the people working on the ground in Haiti for Catholic Relief Services. I can assure you that not only has our immediate reaction been full force but that we will also remain committed to Haiti as it goes through a long period of recovery. Call 1-877-HELP-CRS
To send a check:
Catholic Relief Services
P.O. Box 17090
Baltimore, MD 21203-7090
Memo portion of check: Haiti Earthquake

I am also a long-time fan of Oxfam.

Thank you for wanting to help. It is pretty obvious that in times of tremendous emergency, "conscious consumerism" is not want artisans and farmers immediately need. Once the people of Haiti start to recover, supporting through social enterprise will be an important next step. For now, let's try to give what we can.
