My Brooklyn Heights Blog colleague T.K. Small posted this comment on BHB:
This afternoon I spent some time creating my own fund-raising campaign for contributions to the Haitian relief efforts. Specifically, it concerns me that people with disabilities are at the absolute bottom level of society and, even under the best of conditions, experience unimaginable poverty.My Frayfriend Hipparchia also posted this on her blog.
Through some research I was able to find an organization which has expertise and a track record of providing relief to people with disabilities. Based upon the recommendation of a personal friend of the legitimacy of the organization, I made a contribution. But still I wanted to know more and called the organizer to get a better sense of what they were doing. Very quickly I realized that this is a credible initiative. The organization is called:
Portlight Strategies, Inc.
2043 Maybank Highway
Charleston, SC 294
