UPDATE : The closing date has arrived for the Haïti post, so I’d like to sincerely thank you all for all your comments and messages (17 in total ), I originally said I’d donate £1 for every comment but I’ve since decided to stick a zero on the end to make it £10, hopefully making the donation more effective in the current situation.
I chose the Yele Haiti Earthquake fund to donate the £170/$272 dollars to and will copy some info from their site so you know what they’re all about.
We thank you and gratefully acknowledge your generous contribution to Yele Haiti. Yele Haiti is a movement led by Wyclef Jean that is helping to bring hope back to Haiti. Projects are designed to make a difference in the fields of education, health, environment and community development. Yele Haiti (previously known as the Wyclef JeanFoundation) is a 501 (3) tax exempt charitable organization. No goods or services were provided, in whole or in part, in return for this contribution.Your gift is fully tax deductible as provided in the Internal Revenue Code. Thank you once again! Sincerely, The Yele Haiti Team
