produced a surplus of food and the economy was so prosperous, immigrants
came from the United States for the opportunities Haiti offered.
More info on this.
After being hit by multiple hurricanes in 2008, Haiti was further devastated
by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on January 12th, 2010. Over 220,000 people
died. An additional 1.5 million were left homeless.
Two years later, much of Haiti has yet to recover and
emergency relief is running dry.

You can help the Haitian people to a permanently better life. The End
Poverty Campaign is expanding to help them with:
- Sustainable Agriculture so people can raise
their own food in an environmentally sustainable way.
- Environmental restoration: Much of the land has
been severely damaged, but it can be restored.
- Entrepreneurship: Small loans for people to
successfully start their own businesses.
- Distribution of low cost products that help
people survive and thrive.

innovative organizations that have direct service expertise in Haiti - a
strategy we are building on so that the donations we receive will have the

a volunteer with us. He will be in Haiti at his own expense to find programs
providing the most cost-effective, sustainable ways for people to lift
themselves from extreme poverty.
We’ll double your donation!
Blackman has pledged to match the first $5,000 toward Haiti relief.
