There is an urgency in Haiti. The rainy season starts in less than two weeks. With the lack of shelter due to the earthquake many Haitians will be unprotected from the elements. But there is a way to help. aHomeinhaiti.org is looking to collect 200,000 quality, waterproof tents for Haiti as soon as possible.
Over 700,000 people still have no reliable shelter to give them privacy for life and protection from the harsh weather conditions in Haiti. aHomeinhaiti.org established immediate partnerships with three orphanages and a large camp filled with 80,000+ people to receive the first shipment of tents.
This project started and is being directed by Shaun King, a young pastor & and experienced social networking activist. Shaun has lead many successful and award winning projects on-line such as 500toys.org and HopeATL.com and is using the experience he gained from those efforts to shape this massive drive for tents.
Columbus has a group of individuals assisting the project, 614 For Haiti. You can follow this group for updates on Twitter.
