New Orleans, remembering how the world pulled together for us after Katrina (in fact volunteers are still working on a house today, just 3 blocks from my own), we have really pulled together to try to help after the earthquake down in Haiti.. Confederacy of Cruisers wants to do our part, so during the month of January, I am 10% of what we earn from tours towards the relief efforts down there.

Our preferred charity is International Relief Teams.

They are not flashy, but they are very good, with feet already on the ground. They put 99% of all money donated directly into relief programs and are given 4 stars by charity navigator. Please, check them out and see what they have done around the world and in the Gulf Coast.

We hope Haiti sees the kind of resurgance we have here, they certainly need help.
