As many of you know, a piece of my heart is in Haiti. I have been going there for the past few years to help bring clean water to the people in Seguin. For those of you who want to catch up and see some stories I’d love to sit and chat with you some time. You could also read back through some of the earlier posts on my blog.
When the earthquake hit a couple weeks ago, I started thinking of all the ways I could help. In talking with my friend, Bob Keesee, he planned on becoming part of the 2nd wave of help that would come through. He runs an organization called Raincatchers that brings water collection systems to the Seguin region in southeast Haiti.
His plan was to start raising money for a few specific purposes to help get teams of people into the area. With the earthquake, food and water is now scarce on top of the mountain. I was thinking through how I could help him raise money to get the people on the mountain help. The first thing that came to mind was that the word needed to get out. Since I’m a pretty big web geek, I decided one of the best ways for that was to get a better presence on the internet… immediately. After talking with Bob, we decided to launch his new site in a matter of days instead of the months we had initially talked about.
So, we put together a revised plan for the site that could launch in a matter of days instead of months. After executing that plan, we launched the site yesterday evening! We are very excited about it, and really helps Raincatchers have a better presence on the internet. Go check it out: http://www.Raincatchers.org
