    Thanks for posting the information. I saw the pictures, it was heart wrenching to say the least. Our brothers and sisters over there been through sooooooooooooooooooo much.

    Communtiy efforts to raise enough money to send at one time is an suggestion. Car washes, bake sale, community garage sales, anything. Every little bit helps.

    Thanks again for the information.

    Subject: Our People In Haiti Need Our Help!


    I have received many calls and email asking what The Afrikan Village is going to do to assist our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

    To get to the point, I am asking all persons who are friends and/or supporters of The Afrikan Village, who wish to make a donation to assist in this emergency, please make your contributions to Wyclef Jeans's organization at www.yele.org. Instructions are there on his site for making a donation to help.

    We don't have time to collect funds (as an organization), wait for checks to clear, document all donations, then forward it to Wyclef. He has already set up the structure for that for the fastest way to get the funds to him to help is people there in Haiti. Besides, of ALL of the many "organizations" that are collecting monies to aid Haiti, Wyclef is the one that I trust above all the others. By the time these other "organizations" deduct the costs of the involvement in this process (payroll and other miscellaneous expenses), the "proceeds" (whatever monies are left over) will then go to our people in Haiti. And, the process might take 4 to 6 months to get it to them.

    So, I recommend that you do as I have done, and make your donation directly to our brother Wyclef Jean's organization. Wyclef is a native of Haiti, and the love that he has for his people and family there is what makes me know that the right thing is going to be done with our donations. So, please go directly to his site and donate to this cause.

    Just click the following link to go to his site and make your donation: www.yele.org

    Our prayers are with our people in Haiti and their loved ones.

    As members of the Global Afrikan community we are saddened by the devastation and enormous loss of human life experienced in the country of Haiti, this by the recent earthquake and its aftermath.

    As so many others we have been flooded with phone calls and emails in the out pouring of love and concern for our brothers and sisters of this small Caribbean nation, regarding offering assistance when, where and how possible.

    It is come to our attention that there are many budding efforts around the country and around the world being formulated to assist. For those in the network who would like to help financially or otherwise here are some contacts that may assist us in that aim. Do what you can...........But do something.

    We would also like to suggest to all educators within the reach of this communication, to use this terrible tragedy as an educational tool in your classrooms and in the schools . This is in fact an opportune time to teach our children, our people, the truth about Haiti, The history of this proud Caribbean nation, and why it is in fact so vulnerable to natural as well as manmade catastrophe.

    May we offer a silent prayer for all who lost their lives and those who lost their loved ones in the devastation………..and then get busy..

    Please pass on.....

    The Brothers of S.T.E.P.
