I am working with a group interns to raise over $1,000 so we can get $1000 matching support for DAP.
This January is the 1 year anniversary of Haiti Earthquake. An estimated 3million people were affected by this disastrous earthquake, and billions has been donated for the reconstruction and rehabilitation process. However, many questions has been raised on the effective channeling of the donations (both in-kind and cash). The DAP team has been trying to improve the transparency in Haiti relief, so that every dollars donated to disaster relief work are better spent. To accelerate our mission, DAP team has taken up the Holiday Matching campaign, in which we need, and will greatly appreciate you help.
I have been working on the DAP team for the past 5 months and I can assure you that they have done work that truly defines the word - “non-profit.” Having done research on the disaster struck cases like Haiti and Pakistan, the news that we saw on TV was truly an understatement of the actual suffering of the victims. Even after a year post this sad incident, most of the victims are either left homeless, without a decent meal or suffering from post-disaster diseases. Therefore, you can play your part in reducing suffering and alleviating poverty. By helping the underprivileged, not only you will come out feeling better but it will also provide you with tax deduction. What better way to end the year?
