2010 Haiti Journal #10 Help still needed - leaving for Haiti tomorrow (Saturday)

While crazy rainy torrents swirl through tent cities, we are rushing to pack our over-stuffed bags. Our little team of five leave for Haiti tomorrow morning, where we will be met by a translator and small bus to carry our supplies.
We will stay in tents ourselves this trip...which is hard for me to complain about, since we will come back in April to homes that are dry, and rooms that are snug. My friend for many years, Rea Dol wrote me this morning from Haiti and told me her teachers at Sopudep school are sleeping in cars at night. Every night...when they are lucky enough to get out of the rain- for lack of tents.
If you watched the video I sent last journal (NYTimes) about Rea, you know that she struggles not only to house as many students and teachers that she can, but also to feed them. Food is available in Haiti, there is just no money. If you want to help me help Rea, you can donate right here on our blog, just click the donate button to the left. I will get notice in Haiti, and will go with Rea to buy food. This is the magic of hands on solidarity.
I know so many have given all they can, but maybe you can tell a friend or two. Thank you so very much, peace, leisa
