HOURS PLEDGED: 30

THE STORY:

January 12, 2011 will mark the one-year anniversary of the catastrophic 7.0 earthquake that devastated Haiti, leaving an estimated 230,000 people dead, 300,000 injured and over 1,000,000 homeless.

“Stop Indifference. Show Love.” is MOSCTHA's effort to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the earthquake and reveal the current situation in Haiti, as told by the Haitians living it. The project aims to inspire action that will create concrete and sustainable results. In addition to raising awareness about the reality in Haiti, the project will mobilize action during the 30 days leading up to Valentine’s Day. With an estimated 15 million “e-cards” sent within the US last year, MOSCTHA challenges Americans to celebrate this year’s Valentine’s Day by donating to MOSCTHA’s campaign. “Do something that matters. Stop indifference. Show love.”

“Not many people outside of Haiti know what’s really going on there,” says campaign co-director Alison Désir. “After seeing the situation first hand, we felt we had a moral imperative to provide Haitian people an opportunity to tell their own stories and offer their suggestions and solutions.”

MOSCTHA was one of the first organizations providing emergency and relief work on the ground after the earthquake hit. Building on our established infrastructure and relationships, with 50 Haitian-Dominican staff members and 125 volunteers working in Haiti, MOSCTHA has been able to reach more than 60 of the hardest hit areas, providing relief to more than 80,000 Haitians.

98% of each donation goes directly to the people of Haiti – providing opportunity for them to live full lives. MOSCTHA works in 5 key areas in Haiti: Clean Water, Basic Healthcare, Agricultural Development, Education, developing Micro-Finance opportunities, and Human Rights Advocacy so that real and lasting change is possible. You are welcome and encouraged to specify which aspect of our work you would like to support by including a comment about which key area you would like to see benefit from you donation. You can also dedicate your donation to your loved one, by clicking the "gift" option in the donations.
