When disaster strikes, we count on the media to keep us informed -- but then what? In the wake of Haiti's devastating earthquake, one group of publishers are proving that media can do more than just broadcast the news -- it can help Haiti recover.

Publishers with a Purpose is an online publishing group (TBD is a partner) who have pledged 5% of their total ad inventory to go toward select nonprofits and social causes -- with the shared goal of making a difference.

After seeing charity: water's amazing UNSHAKEN campaign to help Haiti and provide long-term clean water solutions, the folks at PWP were inspired to join them.

PWP is banding together with charity: water to raise $100,000 in funds for Haiti's recovery and bring awareness to their rebuilding effort.

 The $100,000 will go to Haitians in one specific town: Nan Simon, Haiti. With our support (that includes you!), the Nan Simon community will construct 50 latrines, 40 biosand filters, one laundry station, one animal trough and two hand-washing stations.

PWP hopes to spread the word to over 40 million people. They hope you will click, blog, and donate to this great cause.

Help get the word out, blog, retweet, share the video, and shout it from the mountain tops (or better yet, visit charitywater.org and download the banners to join PWP!
