save the children: haiti

Total devastation ... of the likes we can't even fathom as we sit in our comfy homes, hugging our loved ones and planning our weekends.

Haiti is in dire need of help from the world right now. Canned food drives and blanket collections are important, and of course have their place; however, much more is needed in Haiti at this time.

Save the Children
is an amazing organization that does more good in 2 minutes than some sexier and more popular non-profits do in a lifetime. Right now, babies and children are suffering immensely. Save the Children has stepped up ... again.

WESTPORT, Conn., (Jan.14, 2010) — A Save the Children emergency response team successfully reached Haiti Thursday and worked quickly with staff already on the ground to organize the distribution of tents, medicine, and toiletries to children and families in desperate need.

"Save the Children is extremely concerned about the well-being of children in Haiti at this critical moment and we are doing everything we can to quickly get relief supplies to those who need it most," said Charles MacCormack, President and CEO of Save the Children. "Our staff on the ground is pulling out all the stops to overcome hurdles like blocked roads and unreliable access to the airport."

It's become increasingly difficult to find non-profit groups that don't have some obscure (or overt, i.e. ACORN) political agenda. Save the Children is one of the few organizations that truly follows their mission statement ("to create lasting, positive change in the lives of children in need"). They exist solely to do what they were created to do: save the children.
