Here on blogspot there is a campaign going on for bloggers to do there part to help the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010.
The projections are that 2 to 3 million Haitian are without shelter. It is time to start planning on rebuilding and this will mean more funds and resources are needed.
The non profit Architecture for Humanity is an organization that brings together professional designers and developers together to construct schools, shelters, clean water systems and generally whatever else may need to be built.
They have teamed up with other organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, UN Habitat, Oprah's Angel Network to just name a few.
They are seeking donations to help rebuild Haiti. This is right off their website:
