Bringing items down for relief aid for Haiti
Posted 20 January 2010 - 03:57 PM
I saw this on Seavis website (I plan on using them for private tour before the wedding) and wanted to post as brides and their guests in the upcoming months to the DR could greatly help the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Seavis has set up "LEAVE UR CLOTHES" ACTION
If you are heading down there soon there is a current need of the following items:
- medicines and medical supplies (especially antibiotics, needles, pain killers), wheelchairs, tables/ stretchers, water purification tablets / filters,
- buckets and rope (there are wells but no means to get the water out), flash lights, batteries, megaphones, plates and cutlery, tarps to make shelters (plastic car covers will do as well), soap.
If you go to their website they have a list of different drop-off locations but basically said most hotels will take items and send them to a group that will deliver the items.
I will be contacting Alexander (the owner of Seavis) before I leave as needed items might have changed by May and will be letting all my guest know what to bring to help them out.
Please post to your other social network groups (other forums, facebook, twitter, etc.)

I don't want to make this post negative because I think it is great that people are looking to help, but for now it seems like money donations are the best way to go. Maybe the people at Seavis have a plan to get the supplies there with a larger agency, but I know that without the help of a security company it is almost impossible for individuals to bring large donations all the way into the city. It breaks my heart that there isn't more we can do. Hopefully, it will get easier to get supplies to those who need them soon.
If you go to the website, Alexander has a daily blog of what efforts they have done and plan to do.
