We received this message from one our favorite vendors, Sustainable Kids. They have an ongoing relationship with an orphanage in Haiti and have some great resources if you are looking to help the dire situation in this beautiful country. The email reads:
To our friends who want to be able to help in this time of need.
RESCUE WORK- our partner organization will be assisting monetarily through established relief organizations in the area during the first week or two when things are critical from a medical standpoint. 100% of any funds donated go directly to relief and rescue work.
You can make any financial donation, even as small as $25 directly through our partner organization: www.opendoorhaiti.com
Or you can send a check of any amount, to their address below.
SUPPLIES & DONATIONS - the needs for basic items are vast, and only worsened in wake of this disaster.
You can send items directly to Open Door Haiti US for immediate disbursement to those in need.
Most needed: Shoes, First Aid supplies, Personal care items, Vitamins and Clothing.
Send directly to: Open Door Haiti/U.S. 5070 Orange Blvd. Sanford, FL. 32771
