Weeks have passed since the horrific earthquake in Haiti leveled much of their capital city, and caused significant strike for an entire nation. There was a lot of work done in the immediate aftermath of the quake, but attention has waned significantly, with an 8+ quake in Chile, with the Oscars, with the start of Spring, and I fear that much of DC’s attention has drifted away with the rising temperatures.
Tonight, Roots of Development is holding their annual fundraiser to help raise money for their efforts in Haiti after the quake. They’ll be working in concert with the Inter American Development Bank to deliver significant aid and structural assistance to the beleaguered nation this year. It’s not too late to RSVP, so think about doing some good this evening, as well as getting ready for the Cherry Blossoms. It may be warm outside, but it’s good to feel warm inside, too.
