Help Haiti! A call to artists & compassionate spirits

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti. The devastation left in the wake of this disaster is truly heartbreaking. Today i call upon you to join me in the relief effort.
We all can do something to aid the victims of this tragedy. In the words of  Edmund Burke~ “Nobody makes a greater mistake than he who does nothing because he could only do a little.”
Please consider making a donation, the people of Haiti are in desperate need of help.

Heroes for Haiti is a grassroots movement of artists seeking to raise money for organizations helping victims of the recent Haitian earthquake. Heroes for Haiti is not an organization, it’s a collective response to human tragedy. We’re asking everyone to donate a little bit of their talent, money or time towards helping those in need.

And on this Martin Luther King Jr. Day let us all reflect on those who have come before us and struggled for justice; May we carry on the flame of hope and conviction that will better enable us to continue to work towards brighter tomorrows.
