Help us help Haiti...please

Our world is a wondrous place but sometimes we are also devastated by it. Being in the coffee industry as well as officing with an international company Alliance Abroad Group - we are super conscious of what's affecting other parts of the world. Right now we're centered on Haiti.

Kohana Coffee is donating $1 for each new Facebook friend or Twitter follower as well as taking $1 from every online coffee sale to Haiti earthquake relief and the word is really getting out. I'm astonished at how quickly that news spread and our donation dollars have increased - thank you to anyone/everyone who's helped this effort - I'm thrilled. Please Retweet and Share on Facebook - it can only help.

Last night I got an email notice from Causemail.com showcasing different organizations and direct links for donating through Facebook Charity Gift Shop. Although our efforts are not combined, I appreciate the work they did to compile the links and general information.

If you want to help but don't have the dollars - 'follow' us on Twitter or 'friend' us on Facebook, we'll donate the dollars. If you feel led to do more please check out these organizations that help to get resources to our friends in Haiti.
  • Oxfam - Water, sanitation, health and shelter equipment
  • UNICEF - Children care
  • CARE - Food, hygiene kits and water, as well as deliver emergency health services
  • American Red Cross - Shelter and overall care
  • World Vision - Children sponsorship and care
