Haitian relief organized by Alex Wirth, Santa Fe Prep Junior

EDITOR'S NOTE:  This is not a usual post for my Grassroots! site. But I believe the relief effort initiated by Alex Wirth for the horrendous catastrophe that has hit Haiti deserves note.

I have led an effort on my (Santa Fe Prep) student council to organize a response and would invite you all to donate. An online donation to Mercy Corps emergency response team: will help us reach a fundraising goal of $3,000 dollars for the people in the region. If you need any more motivation, here is a video I made outlining the student council's response to the crisis.
Any donation is appreciated. - Alex
