help haiti.

everything going on in haiti is hard to stomach. the pictures, the stories, the reports. it’s all very terrible and my thoughts and prayers go out to the people of haiti.
while it’s a humble and very small offering, i’d like to donate all proceeds of the sales made in my love,taza shop over the next two weeks to the doctors without borders fund to help in haiti. so if you feel so inclined, click here to order a headband and donate to haiti.
to make a donation directly, please click here.
***update: i should have know the haiti response would be so awesome. while i stocked the shop with a over 50 headbands this morning, we’ve sold out. i will try to make more this upcoming week for haiti. thank you everyone!!!

    Thank you so much. I love your blog, and I am also devastated by what is going on in Haiti. I visited there in Spring 2008 on a service trip and fell in love with it. It breaks my heart that a country which as endured so much has to bear this disaster, one that even the most developed nations would be hard-pressed to cope with. I've been so grateful for the outpouring of support from so many Americans, and I just had to say that I really appreciate this contribution of yours! I'm going to your shop right now to choose a headband (in addition to donating to Partners in Health, which is another wonderful organization that has done a great deal for Haiti).
    Thanks so much! And love the blog :)
