Posted on 22 January 2010 by "K".

During the past week, a total of 122 Mob members stepped up and donated a total of $543 for our Haiti Charity project. Add that to the $500 donated by BankrollMob and the total donation ends up at $1,043!

The money has now been forwarded to CARE through Google crisis response:

CARE plans to start food distributions using stocks of high-protein biscuits from CARE warehouses in Haiti. CARE has 133 staff who are on the ground coordinating with U.N. agencies and other aid organizations to gather more detailed information about the damage and will rapidly scale up response based on those assessments.

We want to thank all of you who took part and donated some of your Mob Points to this charity. Obviosuly we hope that we don't have to organize a similar fundraising in the future.

If you wish to make further donations, you can find more information at the Google link above.Read more » Mob Members Help Donate $1,043 To Haiti
