Decentred Lit Haitian Earthquake Relief Initiative
A major earthquake struck Haiti early on Saturday, Aug. 14, destroying or damaging thousands of buildings, and leaving more than 2,000 people dead and thousands more injured or missing.
As a Caribbean-based brand, we feel it is partly our duty to help in any way we can to help Haiti recover from this tragedy and get back on its feet. We will be donating proceeds from our sales as follows:
- 100% of all proceeds from our Merch Store until December 31, 2021 will go to Zanmi Lasante
- 20% of all proceeds from our Adult and Young Adult Subscriptions until March 31, 2022 will go to Hope for Haiti.
Zanmi Lasante (as Partners in Health is known in Haiti) delivers health care to the world’s poorest places. Now, they are on the ground in Haiti providing medical support to those affected by earthquake. You can get their latest updates on this effort, and if you’d like to donate directly, you can do so here.
Hope for Haiti is one of the most trusted organizations focused on providing support and partnership for the Haitian people every single day. You can take a look at their plan of action to help Haitians during this time, and if you’d like to donate directly, you can do so here.
