The devestation we're seeing in Haiti is overwhelming. With as many as 100,000 people feared dead and 3,000,000 needing shelter, food or aid as a result of the quake, it's a huge undertaking.
Connexus (through our Global X mission fund) is sending $3,000 directly toward relief efforts. With matching funds announced today by the Canadian government, that should provide $6000 toward relief. Because we do not have a direct Connexus presence in Haiti, we are sending the money to an outside organization (as we would encourage you to do).
