Bad week, right? ElectFAIL, healthcare reform swirling the drain, Intra-Kossack Warfare and all topped off with SCOTUS handing corporations our political system on a silver platter.
Want to end the week on a positive note? Want to do something to help people without healthcare? The homeless? The disenfranchised? Something progressive, to feel good about? Something to bring the DKos community together?
As bad as this week was, it was far worse for our neighbors. You know - Haiti. Massive earthquake. Cities reduced to rubble. Mass graves. A living nightmare - children without food and water, people without shelter for days on end.
You can help change that.

You see that picture up there? That's a ShelterBox Tent being used as a hospital recovery room. That's what happened to the very first shelter boxes to land in Port au Prince:
ShelterBox tents are being used by hospitals in Port au Prince to provide emergency shelter for post surgery patients in Haiti’s capital.
The first ShelterBoxes to arrive in the country have been immediately utilised by doctors in desperate need of equipment to help treat huge numbers of injured Haitians.
Your donation provides immediate resources for ShelterBox to give aid to Haitians right now!
So I have a challenge for you Kossacks - 100 ShelterBoxes by Sundown! We can do this! We already have raised $84,000 - yes, $84,000 for ShelterBox. All we need is $16,000 more. That's it and we can make this happen.
I'm in for $100 - who is with me?
Here's how you do it:
- At the very bottom of the donation page is a comments section. Please let them know you came from Daily Kos.
- Come back here and please let us know how much you donated - from $5 to $15,000. We will add it all into the total.
SO LETS DO THIS!!

Superspecial thanks goes to TexMex who has been tirelessly doing these diaries. She has no clue, but everytime I see her username I get hungry.
