I love this! The Western New York Impact Foundation has gathered up volunteers to go to Haiti to help residents heal their lives after the devastating hurricane! The group is heading to Haiti next week on October 19th, according to WIVB! The volunteers will help out with recovery efforts in hard hit areas. You can help them offer relief by making a donation to the Western New York Impact Foundation. They guarantee that the money goes directly towards Haitians. I know I've seen lots of folks concerned on social media after hearing about scandals with the Red Cross and even The Clinton Foundation collecting donations and allegedly not providing the funds to the Haitian people!

The Western New York Impact Foundation is seeking donations, either money or medical supplies, or both! You can send your donation to the WNY Impact Foundation:

PO Box 46
Clarence Center, NY 14022
