Like the rest of the world, we are horrified by the devastation the earthquake wrought on Haiti. While many large organizations have mobilized to provide support for the victims, many smaller efforts are in process as well. We, like many others, were glad to provide monetary support (with matching from Truls’ company) through the Save the Children organization. But the needs are great and there is so much yet to be done.
This afternoon, the girls and I baked a cake and cookies to contribute in our small way to the Haiti Earthquake Relief Bake Sale going on tomorrow in Menlo Park from 8am to 3pm in front of the Draegers Market. All proceeds will help a local team of doctors and nurses provide outpatient support to earthquake victims in Haiti. The travel, the medical supplies and more require monetary support and through the efforts of PAMP, Silicon Valley Moms Group and other organizations, this bake sale is one of the ways we can all chip in. Come join us if you can!
