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.
