Haiti 2010 Earthquake Response

Donations keep coming, even from America’s homeless

The Baltimore chapter of the American Red Cross reports that it recently received a combined donation of $14.64 during a church service for homeless people at a downtown shelter.  Others in Baltimore have given generously, too, giving the Red Cross a total of $400,000 to help Haitians recover from the terrible January 12 earthquake.

At the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, people responded enthusiastically to a plea for crutches to send to Haiti, where many survivors of the earthquake are new amputees. In all, the Center has shipped 2,500 pairs of crutches to a nonprofit that runs a hospital tent in Port-au-Prince.
