This photo has just haunted me today.  I don’t know anything about the boy other than he was injured in the earthquake and was receiving care in a Port-au-Prince hotel.  I would consider myself a somewhat jaded person after years on working in the nonprofit sector, but this tragedy has really struck a nerve. I have watched television all day and read every scrap of information online.  The history of this nation reads like a Greek tragedy.  I wanted to do something and after looking at all the ways to help, I decided to make a donation to fund direct aid to the country through a organization called Mercy Corps.  I  have made donations to Mercy Corps in the past to assist other countries in times of natural disasters. If you would like to donate any amount please click on this link to my fundraising page with Mercy Corps.
