Fundraising for Haiti and Chile Relief

In News on March 11, 2010 by savehaitiproject Tagged:

The situation in Haiti and Chile demand the coming together of the international community for the cause of humanity. Whereas watching the plight of human suffering on
the television often leaves the average citizen feeling helpless due to the limited power, influence and resources they may wield, nothing could be further from the truth.

The individual capacity to greatly impact the lives of those in need is not in what one currently wield’s or lack’s, rather, it rest’s in societies’ market of compassion for others and how much an individual can extract from that goodwill to make a positive change in the lives of those in need.

On March 10th, 2010 (today), we at the Save Haiti Project held a bake sale at the University Of Ontario Institute of Technology to raise fund’s to help with Haiti and Chile relief by mean’s of the Canadian red cross. Setting out to raise awareness and fund raise for a cause is one of the most fundamental way’s that the average citizen can help to impact the lives of other’s in need far away from them. The Save Haiti Project raised a total of $118 dollars for the cause.

Though very little in proportion to the disaster, what is significant is that the Save Haiti Project is but a small group of a much larger population of citizens worldwide who’s combined donation’s to the cause will help ensure that the affected receive first aid, the hungry can get food, the sick can receive care, and the homeless can receive shelter and attention.
It is the combined effort of humanity that later creates the biggest impact in the lives of those in need. The Save Haiti Project is happy to have been a part of it.

It is never too late. Visit the red cross website and make an impact!

Save Haiti Project is an assignment by a group of University Of Ontario Institute Of Technology (UOIT Oshawa, ON) student’s seeking to raise awareness of the catastrophic earthquake that hit the nation of Haiti and Chile recently and the impact it has had on the lives that reside in these nations.

The quake in Haiti has led to the death of hundred’s of thousand’s of Haitian citizens and even more displaced from their homes. Prior to these heartbreaking events, Haiti was already a poor nation experiencing wide spread hunger and disease. This disaster has turned what was already a dire situation into a catastrophe. The same is true for the nation of Chile which although has managed to avoid a distastor on the scale of Haiti dispite the more powerful quake, the’re are estimates that over 1 million Chilean’s were displaced from thier homes as a result and thousands killed. These people need the help of those of us fortunate enough to be living normal lives.
