How to help Haiti

I have more information for my upcoming trip to Haiti. First, there is an online auction which is currently taking place. There aren’t a ton of items on there, but there are some really good ones. For instance,

Weekend at the Ocean

Labor Day, 2012 weekend stay (3 nights) at a cabin on Round Pond Harbor (near New Harbor and Pemaquid Point), sleeps 6, use of 3 kayaks, extra night available for $100

The starting bid for that is $100 (which is an incredible deal for just about anything on the Maine coast during the last day of the summer season). It is valued at $500, but even that is still a great deal. Who knows what it will go for, but it can’t hurt to put in a bid.

My second piece of updating has to do with the way one can donate. We still need things like craft and school supplies and medical items which can be sent directly to UMA (see here), but one of the best ways to help is by donating good, ol’ cash. Fortunately, we have managed to get things up to speed for the 21st century and it is now possible to donate online. Every little bit helps.

I’m going to do what I can to keep things up to date here, but it can’t hurt to also like our Facebook page.
