Blog Away Hunger / Help Haiti

by arnold on January 23, 2010

I may be on vacation, but that doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to what’s going on in the world. The earthquake in Haiti has devastated the country, and the world’s eyes are currently transfixed on recovery, rescue, and relief efforts there. I’ve already donated money to Artists for Peace and Justice, and my wife donated to both Doctors Without Borders and OxFam America to help support their relief efforts in Haiti.

But after being inspired by Marc at No Recipes and his Help Haiti campaign (part of his larger Blog Away Hunger initiative), I’m going to triple my ad revenue total for the month of January and donate it to help the cause. Since ad revenue is paid based on the number of clicks within a Web site, you can easily increase the amount of my donation by clicking and reading the posts on this blog.

Help Haiti

If you’re a food blogger with an ad revenue stream and want to participate, go to the Help Haiti site for more information. I’d also love it if you tried to match or beat my pledge to donate triple my January ad total to the cause.

If you want to make a donation on behalf of Help Haiti, you can give money directly to the Friends of the World Food Program. Make sure to select Haiti Disaster in the drop-down menu when you donate.

If you choose to donate to a different organization, that’s fine too. Anything you can do to help Haiti get back on its feet is a worthwhile endeavor.

I was pleasantly surprised to come across this post! Thank you for interrupting your “regularly scheduled programming” to bring attention to the plight in Haiti. Enjoying food as we do here in the US (blogging, experimenting, and just the sheer amount of choice of foods we have) is quite the luxury. As I’ve come across the food blogs in my google reader that continue on about salted caramels, personal chef delivery services while there are people suffering from a major natural disaster, I realize what a bubble world some folks live in!

Thanks again and big up to Marc @ no recipes, too! Mahalo and Aloha!
