Give: Direct Relief International

On the other side of the studio, I'm doing some design work for local non-profit, Direct Relief International. Direct Relief is a 60-year-old nonprofit organization focused on improving quality of life by bringing critically needed medicines and supplies to healthcare providers worldwide. They've responded immediately to the tragic aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.

Just the other day I had a meeting at the headquarters and was given a tour of the warehouse where much of the donated material and medicine is stored. In the loading bay was a huge truck being packed with 13 pallets of medications and medical supplies bound for Haiti via FedEx plane. I learned that the shipment included antibiotics, wound care, sterilization products, bandages, and other necessary supplies to treat the injured.

I encourage you to learn more about Direct Relief International and their emergency response after the earthquake in Haiti. You can visit their website and donate to their cause at
