A 7.0 earthquake hit southern Haiti on Tuesday causing catastrophe in the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Damage and destruction is widespread, with casualties and death toll not yet known.
Wee Bit Trendy and S.W.A.G. (Sharp With Art Group) have joined forces to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. We will be auctioning off paintings and baby products with full proceeds going to Haiti, they will be set up on Ebay with the help of missionfish.org, so that you are 100% sure the proceeds are going directly to the organization. We are also donating food, clothing and funds.
In the meantime, we have compiled a small list of LEGITIMATE ORGANIZATIONS that need our help. Money is not the only thing needed, so is food, clothing and supplies.
Also, if you would like to help us help them OR if you know other ways we can help, please just post a comment or contact us – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. This is not the only way we plan to help Haiti and not the only thing we plan to do.
