Update (1/24) – When 11:59pm PST rolled around on January 20th, we had received a total of 266 reviews for Haiti. As a result, we’ll be donating $3,000 to Compassion International on behalf of all the reviews shared by our Trekaroo families. Thanks for showing such an outpouring of support for those in Haiti.
Update (1/19) – So far 222 reviews have been written in donation to the Haiti relief efforts! We have even more exciting news. One of our generous Trekaroo families has added an additional $1000 to our pledge. So, we are increasing our pledge for any NEW reviews to $20 until we hit our extended $3000 limit. Keep writing to help Haiti.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Haiti. Officials fear more than 100,000 dead in the 7.0 earthquake. Our family sponsors a child in Haiti (Benji, 6 years old) and are hoping for the best.
If you’ve got money to spare, here are a few organizations that you can donate to for earthquake relief:
