Bloggers Unite for Haiti
I already took to my Twitter to spread the word about Bloggers Unite for Haiti, but wanted to make sure as many people as possible know that this is going on and how they can continue to spread the word about how they and others can help the relief efforts.
I found out about this blogging event from Nina Amelia, a wonderful commenter and felt very compelled to spread the word.
Bloggers Unite for Haiti will take place on January 19th, where bloggers everywhere unite for one day to spread the word about current conditions in Haiti, how and where to donate money, supplies and volunteer and personal thoughts about the tragic earthquake that has killed countless Haitians. However, because this is not just an effort to spread awareness of a certain topic or social issue, but a day-to-day struggle for the people of Haiti, this is not a one-day blogging event and they are and will continue to compile lists of blog posts from around the blogosphere that have to do with how to provide aid and relief to Haiti.
Also, while it is tremendously important to raise awareness about relief efforts in Haiti and to donate generously to worthwhile, hard-working charities dedicated to providing much-needed aid to the region, it is also so, very important to learn more about Haiti and to educate ourselves about the region, if just to wrap our heads around as to how dire the situation there was even before the earthquake hit and how much worse the region is now.
If you have not already, sign up for Bloggers Unite for Haiti and start spreading the word about relief efforts before, on January 19th, and after.
