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.

Below is a photo of Sister Jane Meyer making a 14,000-foot skydive, capping an $88,000 fundraising for St. Agnes Academy in Houston.

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.
