Bloggers Day of Action For Haiti

bloggers day of action for haiti

Today AphroChic is proud to have joined with fifteen bloggers from around the country to commit to a Bloggers Day of Action for Haiti.  Today we use our blogs not just to discuss design and fashion, but to identify ways to help with the relief effort in a country that has been devastated by disaster.  The fifteen blogs below are taking this day to post about the amazing culture and diversity of this island country and ways that you can help make a difference.

































Today on AphroChic we will be hosting a charity auction to help raise funds for efforts on the ground.  We will be auctioning works from some of your very favorite designers including Laidback Home, Hammocks & High Tea, Verre New York, and Name Your Design, just to name a few. 

Today we are committed to taking action, and I ask you to join us.  If you are a blogger or designer who would like to participate in the Bloggers Day of Action for Haiti, please send me an e-mail at Jeanine@aphrochicshop.com.  Together, we can raise thousands for all those in need.

Charitable donations can be sent to:
Red Cross
UNICEF
Yele Haiti

  2. Thanks for taking a day off from the usual blogging to reach out for the Haitian people. I was saddened by the tragedy that I could not bring myself to blog about anything else. Haiti has suffered many injustices and catastrophes in the past; this is one of the worst. It's wonderful to see so many people reach out to help.

  5. Fabulous.

    Just added you to our ever growing list of artists/designers/crafters raising funds for Haiti.

    By promoting all the sites under one roof so to speak it will be easier for buyers to find you all.
