Dallas-Haiti Project Offers Chance to Help
The group was put together by Gretchen and Warren Berggren of the Harvard School of Public Health when the Berggrens were living here to be near a daughter. Now, the Dallas-Haiti Project raises money in North Texas, often through schools, to support the St. Vincent School for Handicapped Children in Port-au-Prince. Go to their site to see the dedicated fund they have started for earthquake victims.
They're still so small-scale they can only accept checks, member Susan Aberg told me this afternoon. But in the true spirit of giving, they are asking people who want to make donations by credit card to give the money to Partners in Health, a much larger organization associated with the School of Public Health at Harvard.
