this week's good idea isn't necessarily related to paper, but i think i'll make an exception. i'm sure like me most of you were shocked and saddened by the horrible earthquake in haiti this week -- but my heart has been warmed to see so many people springing into action to try to help out.
here are a few examples from the blogosphere:
- oh so beautiful paper posted about illustrator claudia pearson's fundraiser to help haiti victims -- 25% of all sales of claudia's two new valentines prints will be donated to yele haiti.
- say yes! to hoboken is donating one month's subscription fees to unicef for everyone who signs up for a four-month advertising sponsorship
- the american red cross has seen great success in its texting campaign -- text "haiti" to 90999 and a donation of $10 is automatically donated to the red cross to help with relief efforts [funds are taken directly from your cell phone bill]
- see a list of other ways to help here, from NPR
if you know of any other social media campaigns for haiti, leave a note in the comments and i'll add it to the list.
