Helping Haiti

Our hearts go out to Haiti as the country tries to recover from the devastating earthquake. As celebrities draw attention—and donations—to relief efforts through certain charities, we want to echo their call for help. These organizations are committed to making a difference.

Buddha Necklace

If you want to show your support for the people of Haiti, a wonderful way is with a necklace from Jewelry for a Cause, which is donating 50% of proceeds from the necklace to Doctors Without Borders’ efforts in Haiti. The Buddha is seated in Varada mudra, the pose of charity and compassion, and its deep blue color symbolizes medicine and healing. Let’s send that message of hope to Haiti.

Price: $25; 50% of proceeds donated to Doctors Without Borders.

StillerStrong

Ben Stiller has been working with Save the Children for several years to raise funds to build a school for children in Haiti. But for now, all donations to his charity are being redirected to UN Agencies to help provide relief. Stiller also recently announced the launch of the Haitian School Initiative to help provide temporary schools for Haitians displaced by the earthquake.
