Help for Haiti

The other day, I posted about wanting to help for Haiti but not being sure how. Since then, I've come across a few different outlets for photographers.

For starters, there's the Charity Print Auctions on flickr. You don't need a flickr account to bid on some of the items (though, I'm told, it does help) and there are some higher-end photographers submitting work there, for you to browse.

Some of the more popular galleries, like Wallspace have started print sales to benefit Haiti, so a search around your favorite web hangouts might reveal a great way to decorate your walls while helping out a good cause at the same time.

Lastly, I got word from the wonderful and talented Tina over at Studio 2, who is organizing a Haiti relief show, which will feature artists, including myself, working in various media (including photography) to benefit the relief efforts.

Until next time...

The more people trying to do SOMETHING, the better. The problems in Haiti go beyond the horrific natural disaster. Haitians need greater political and economic stability. They need long-term help by the international community to get on their feet. Support U.S. and U.N. commitments to provide many kinds of support over the next decade.

Oh, yes, that's so very true.

On the other hand, if everybody did something, even a little something, it could not help but help. I think that's part of the problem. Everybody wants to help in some way and feels so blocked. Powerless. The earthquake dealt a horrible blow to people who were already suffering-that's what hurts the most.
