Hey everyone! I'm popping in today to relay some information about how you can help the relief efforts for the Haiti Earthquake that happened on Jan 12th.
As some of you may know, my boyfriend works for a non-profit charity in Pittsburgh called "Brother's Brother Foundation". This charity focuses on overseas aide and has appeared in Forbes as one of the top efficiency charities in the country.
I know that a lot of people are wanting to offer aide to Haiti right now, but might not know where to go. While most of you are not in the Pittsburgh area, BBF is collecting "Hygiene Buckets" as I am calling them, for local drop off. They are also taking monetary donations, more information on both can be found here: http://www.brothersbrother.org/haitidonorguide.htm
This is one of the few charities out there that has such a low overhead while doing so much good. I've included links to the Forbes articles that explain a little of what they do as well as show the numbers. So if you feel compelled and want to help, this is a good place to go.
Thanks for taking the time to read this everyone!
