Creative fund-raising for Haiti
From the WSJ:
Acts of homespun ingenuity characterize much of the Haiti fund raising. Jeff Winton, a seventh-generation North Harmony, N.Y., dairy farmer, says he sold four cows and two bull calves and donated the proceeds, $4,000, to the Coalition for Haitian-American Empowerment, a New Jersey nonprofit.
“The more we sat in front of the TV, the more we realized we needed to do something,” he says.

If you would like to do something less risky but effective, please consider presenting a song with your church worship team on behalf of the poor.
