Mercy Corps is sending an emergency relief team to Port-au-Prince, and we’d like your help in spreading the word. Would you consider writing a blog post highlighting Mercy Corps’ efforts there? We’d also really appreciate it if you could put one of our banners on your sidebar: http://www.mercycorps.org/linktous. Mercy Corps has extensive experience responding to earthquakes: Indonesia in 2009, China and Pakistan in 2008, and Peru in 2007. Please help us respond as quickly and effectively to this disaster as we did to those.

For more information about Mercy Corps’ efforts in Haiti, you can check out http://www.mercycorps.org/haiti?source=13500, http://www.mercycorps.org/?source=13500, and http://www.mercycorps.org/rogerburks/blog/17219. Our efforts for Haiti have also been mentioned by The Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/01/13/whos-heading-to-haiti-res_n_421231.html), The New York Times (http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/haiti-disaster-relief-how-to-contribute/), The U.S. State Department (http://blogs.state.gov/index.php/site/entry/disaster_haiti), and The Christian Science Monitor (http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Americas/2010/0112/7.0-earthquake-rocks-Haiti).
