Fundraising for Haitian Relief

Dear Readers,

On this Martin Luther King Day, I am taking action by creating a personal fund-raising page on the website of Partners in Health, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor of the world.

Founded by Dr. Paul Farmer on a shoestring budget decades ago, PIH now works in a number of countries around the world, but has worked specifically in Haiti for more 20 years. With boots on the ground in Haiti for so many years, PIH was able to be one of the first organizations to respond to the recent disaster, and I am honored to actively raise money on their behalf. My goal is to raise $1000 in the next week, and I ask that you consider donating today in memory of Dr. King and his historic legacy.

Thank you!
