Haiti Earthquake - ZS Charity Drive

Post by kyle » Thu Jan 14, 2010 10:43 am

As you all know, a quake measured at 7.0 on the Richter scale hit Haiti this week.

The hearts of the ZS community go out to the victims and the aid workers struggling through this disaster. As the news rolls in we're finding more and more about how horrible the catastrophe is and how painful the conditions are for those trying to survive through it.

We have a few threads in here with additional information:
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 22&t=57776" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 22&t=57727" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I know times are tough for all of us right now but it's no where near as tough as they are for the Haitian people. PLEASE donate what you can. They need our help!

Many of you have sent us emails and messages asking if ZS is going to host a charity drive for this disaster. Unfortunately, we have a charity drive going on at the moment ( http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopi ... 47&t=56796" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ) and we do not have the resources to run a second drive concurrently.

However, Red Cross and Save the Children are two of the major charities responding and both are listed as options for our drive. Due to the recent disaster, if you have already donated to the drive and you wish to change your vote, drop us an email to charity@zombiehunters.org and let me know who you are and how you want your vote changed.

Where ever you decide to donate, please investigate before you give. There are a lot of of scam artists out there who like to use this opportunity to take advantage of the selflessness of others.

I know I would be willing to see if we can get something going as a chapter. We can further discuss it the meeting this weekend.

Here is a link to donate:

https://secure.crs.org/site/Donation2?d ... tion=form1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It's through CRS, which is on the ground already and directly helping the people. USAID has given them money, and they've already pledged $5 million of their own funds. They're a good group.

Here's another relief organization that runs several orphanages in Haiti, and had people there during the quake. FWIW, they have been running the orphanages there since 1986, so they are not any "Johnny come latelys".

Another organization is Shelterbox USA (the home organization is British). One Shelterbox contains the following:
• One 49 gallon box (The Shelterbox) initially the container for delivery of the materials listed below. Once delivered, can be used as water tank, food store, cot, table, etc.

• One ten-person tent, including two fabric interior privacy partitions, outer fly-sheet and repair kit. These tents are considered ‘winter suitable’ by international relief standards.

• Vinyl insulated sleeping mats and lightweight thermal blankets. More compact than sleeping bags, these mats and blankets have multiple uses. The blanket can also be fashioned to catch water, as a tarp, etc. while the mat also serves as a ground ‘table’ for meals, or tent rugs.

• One pack of 180 water purification tablets or a water purification kit; and one 5 gallon flat-pack water container (Each tablet will purify a full container of water providing 1,800 gallons of clean drinking water which should be sufficient for a family of ten for up to three months).

• Two 2.1 gallon, collapsible, plastic water carriers.

• One collapsible trenching shovel

• Rope, 164 foot

• Repellant-treated mosquito netting

• Ten PVC Ponchos/ ten HD plastic bags

• Tool kit in canvas bag: hachet, jack-knife, screwdriver, hammer, hoe head etc.

• Multi-fueled cook stove

• Eating utensils: enamel plates/cups

• Children's activity kit-simple school supplies, stickers and coloring book

Supplies are good, but organizations with people on the ground (CRS, World Vision, etc) are better- supplies can be used in any fashion by anyone (including a corrupt government). If you have people directing the aid, it's much more likely to get to those truly in need (and not the cronies).

Apparently, and I haven't confirmed this myself, but
UPS is shipping anything under 50lbs for free to Haiti. You can send food, clothes, shoes...American Airlines is taking doctors and nurses to Haiti for free. Please call 212-697-9767. Red Cross needs Creole speaking volunteers for 24 hr phone bank. Call Mr Wilfred @ 305-776-6900."

Someone of my facebook posted that, and I thought I'd share it, in case it's true.

Jesus, I really wish I could do more.

I already donated a sizable sum to the Salvation Army, and earmarked it for the Haiti relief effort...But damn...I just wish I could afford to donate the same amount to every charity that's helping, and go volunteer myself.

Unfortunately, I doubt I have any critical skills, at this stage, and would just be more unskilled labor that needed to be housed and fed.

Fuck, man...I really need to pursue some sort of medical profession.

Here's a huge list of charities from Fox News, if you're still having trouble picking one or ones to donate to.
Foxnews.com wrote: Numerous organizations are mobilizing to lend a hand in the devastating aftermath of Tuesday's earthquake in Haiti.

The U.S. Dept of State's Web site suggests texting 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. As of Friday morning, Americans have "texted" more than $8 million for Haiti relief.

Click here to learn a couple of simple, safe ways to donate to the cause, or contact one of the following well-established charities that are collecting donations for relief efforts.

Authorities caution people to beware of online scammers.

Anything ZS can do as a single effort to help out, or are we relying on outside sources for donation for the time being?

Well...maybe a group called Zombie Squad sending aid to Haiti might be thought of as tasteless in some quarters.

I have donated elsewhere, to the Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, and ShelterBox.

Correct. The original post in this thread (my post) explains why we are not organizing a concentrated financial effort from Zombie Squad. Bad timing. However, you are welcome to support the current charity drive that we are running right now that is a "concentrated effort".

If you are referring to a physical presents with ZS boots on the ground, that is not what this organization is about. We do not have the resources to properly train members and safely send them out to the disaster area at this time. We, instead, encourage our members to join up and give their time to other reputable organizations mentioned in this thread, like Red Cross.

Not so much the latter. I know ZS doesn't really have the money or manpower to do that, though I'm sure it'd be a cool thing to do if such a status was ever reached. I was thinking more along the lines of a single charity that the group promoted or started up whereby members and regulars could send packages, money, and other items to one destination for eventual shipping to Haiti. I guess I just didn't do the greatest of jobs when first scanning this thing. Sorry for the mix-up.

Boots on the ground would be a bad Idea in the first place. Because we would have to have our own jets and we would need the clearance from the United States Government to land their in the first place. Also like OP said we don't have the money and also we dont have the time or power to train our Men and Women of ZS.

The only way to get volunteers over there would be to fly to the nearest operational airport to Haiti and then work your way in from there. Too much time and resources to complete effectively.

I sent the Red Cross Haiti fund $300 this morning. Would be great to go help in person, but there are people waaaaaay more qualified than me, so I'll just help them help the Haitians.

and

http://www.glahaiti.org/home" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; - an orphange that was already on the ground in Haiti on the day of the quake, they need supplies to keep the kids safe and fed

Bravo to all who have been able to help so far!

I really dont want to sound mean, But I would find it easier to care about anything in Haiti If I though for one second that even one dollar had come from Haiti to help with any of our disasters. Instead we have sent billions of dollars there over the years and not one bit of progress has been made to show for any of our hard work and good intention. As far as I am concearned they must sleep in the bed they have made for themselves.

You don't sound mean......You just sound like an officious, holier-than-thou prick. :roll:

I'll never understand why, for the life of me, people with shitty-assed attitudes like this can't just keep their stupid ass thoughts to themselves, instead of posting how thay're "too good" to donate in here. Like it or not, there are far more good people here, that care about those in need and try to do something about it, than people that have your f@&king mentality.

Hope you never need the kindness of others, that deem you unworthy of their time and resources..... :?
