Mariah, a 2009 JA has set up and appeal for the victims of Haiti. She has already raised and donated funds and now has designed Tshirts and is selling wristbands to raise further much needed money!
PLEASE HELP HER HELP OTHERS!!
Her email to me is below, so please have a read and scrape together any extra cash you can and send it to her (details below).
Thankyou! And Good Work Mariah!
We are the Bridge!
After much toing and froing, the Haiti fundraising t-shirts are finally ready to be ordered. Attached are the three designs. They are available in XS, S, M, L and XL. We are also selling rubber wristbands for the appeal. The t-shirts are $15 each, and the wristbands are $3 each.
If you just want to make a donation, could you please just write a cheque addressed to World Vision Australia Haiti Earthquake Appeal or just World Vision Australia and send it to me at '755 Barrabool Rd Ceres 3221'.
I know it has been a long time (9 months) since the earthquake, but things have hardly improved over there.
Much of the aid promised was never given, and most of the volunteers have left. 98% of the rubble remains uncleared, and in this rubble lie thousands of bodies. 1.6 million people are homeless and only ten thousand of these have a tent. There are increased levels of robbery and violence and children are being stolen and sold into the international sex trade.
The money raised will help towards long-term solutions such as clearing the rubble, building houses and funding health centres and schools.
I was just wondering whether you would be able to pass this on to anyone whom you think would be interested in buying something. They really need to be in by the end of the week or middle of next week.
Thanks for all your tremendous help with everything,
