A Special Appeal from The Fashion Group International

I got this email from NY I'd like to post:

To our FGI Members,
In Haiti. Nothing to drink. Nothing to eat. Nowhere to sleep. Thousands lost. Everything gone.

No way out. Look and see.

If you can transport your mind to that place of unimaginable tragedy and ruin; if you can contemplate, just for a moment, if it were you. Your child. Your family. Your home, you'd reach for your wallet in a heartbeat.

On behalf of The Fashion Group International, I am pleased to tell that our organization is contributing a significant sum toward the relief of the Haitian people and their beleaguered country, and I am counting on each and every one of you to contribute what you can; any amount will help.

Four organizations to consider:

The American Red Cross, 2025 E Street, NW, Washington D.C. 20006:
Text "HAITI" to "90999" to make a $10.00 donation or call (800) 486-435,

Catholic Relief Services, P.O. Box 17090, Baltimore, MD, 21203-7090, (800) 736-3467;

Doctors Without Borders, 333 7th Avenue, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10001-5004, (888) 392-0392,

Save The Children, Haiti Earthquake Children in Emergency Fund, 54 Wilton Road, Westport, CT 06880 (800) 728-3843,

And, please, do it now.
