Help for Haiti

A reporter and a photographer from my newspaper, The News-Press, were sent to Haiti yesterday to document the recovery and relief effort and to find people with Fort Myers ties.
Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. The devastation is astounding, and they are working around the clock to tell the story. They got to the Dominican Republic last night and were in Haiti about 8 a.m. today.

Here are Andrew's photos from today.

The photos and Rachel's stories can also be found on the page with their updates. Here it is.

Also consider making a donation to help the relief efforts. Maybe your company has company match, too.
I just made a donation to MercyCorps and made my own donation page. But the Red Cross and these others need help, too.

  • This hits really close to home because we have a lot of people from Haiti living in Fort Myers, and one of Scott's former students has family there that still can't be reached.
