One Man Flies Down To Haiti (He’s Still There) And Shares His Story – Haiti Chronicles

Bro. Leyde Hands on Helping Haiti

One of my fraternity brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc — Leyde St. Leger (Xi Psi, Hofstra University, Spring 1999) has been in Haiti doing some remarkable things during these last two weeks!  He sends regular updates to people on his Blackberry and by using Facebook.  We recently created a website that will help share his story and document his accomplishments.  Be sure to read his blog, “The Haiti Chronicles” and please forward the website information to other listservs, as well as to those you think might be interested.

Love Helps: Haitian Earthquake Disaster Relief Mixer by Non Stop Radio

An earthquake centered near the impoverished Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince caused the collapse of several buildings and an unknown number of fatalities Tuesday. The quake measured 7.0 on the Richter scale and at least 1.8 million people live within the area where the earthquake had its highest intensity.

As we are looking to get together and make an impact, we decided to come together and host “Love Helps: Haitian Earthquake Relief Afterwork Fundraiser” so that we can donate ALL earnings to our families in HAITI, via Wyclef Jean’s YELEHAITI foundation.

It will be FREE entrance – however we will be collecting donations inside. Permissible donations include:

-Pre-paid cell phones (very useful to the folks in Haiti as they are looking for ways to replace lost communication)

DJ Vega Benetton (of Haitian descent) will be there spinning the best of hip hop, reggae & of course, KOMPA.

Shout out to Tuff City Styles.

A good time for a good cause.

We hope to see you there next wednesday & God bless.
