My husband started 614forHaiti after the devastating earthquake hit Haiti on January 12, 2010. An excerpt from the website (designed by Scott Baker):

614forHAITI is a group of renegades across Columbus, Ohio who are ready and willing to instigate love for Haiti. This grassroots effort is fueled by individuals working to stir up funds, awareness and compassion in relief efforts following earthquakes of January 2010.

We sponsor a boy named Osley in Haiti and Compassion called us last week to inform us that he and his family have survived the earthquakes. Their home experienced some damage. Overall it’s been great finding ways to support the efforts around Columbus. We attended and participated in a silent auction at Surly Girl Saloon, initiated a tent drive last week, and helped spread the word about other local fundraisers. I think we’ve learned how difficult it is to keep momentum and awareness about specific issues when there are so many others to become involved in. I’m so thankful that we all have our own interests, passions, and talents.

To donate, visit aHomeinHaiti.org. They are raising money and collecting tents for those in Haiti. The rainy season is now and they need shelter.
