Yele is a great organization… Also consider Paul Farmer’s “Partners in Health”.  He’s been working in Haiti doing health care for a long time and is now appointed by the government to do work in Haiti.  I’ve met Paul and he does fabulous, really smart work and has been invested in Haiti for over 20 years.

I know… it reminds me of Katrina too (on a larger scale, obviously). I can’t stop thinking about how awful it is. We’ve made text message donations but I think we’ll make a larger donation and then have those “in lieu of favors” cards.

You can still call me d. girl if you want 🙂  and I hadn’t noticed that I was rapidly approaching Beekeeper.  How did that happen?

Difference between this horrible disaster and Katrina is that our government has moved swiftly and definitively to get there and make a difference right away.  There are still nearly insurmountable logistical hurdles, but I feel really proud of the effort!
