Haiti Update from TEDx Peachtree

Here is a speech update of WaterBrick's involvement and continued assessment of the needs in Haiti.  This speech was given at TEDx Peachtree on November 5, 2010 in Atlanta.  TED is a great world-wide non-profit organization that hosts day long local events, called TEDx, featuring speakers that have "Ideas Worth Spreading".  We were asked to keep it under 10 minutes so we focused on the main points over the 10 months we have been involved.  Check out our speech update at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlVh_YJ3Mb8.

For any questions or new ideas on how we can create partnerships and provide help in Haiti, contact us at info@waterbrick.org as we welcome your feedback.  As an example, we have partnered with Global Giving, Love A Child, Dow Chemical, and Brenntag.  Brenntag just answered our call by providing 2,700 gallons of bleach (in addition to our bleach donation of 1,000 gallons) to help stop the cholera outbreak for example.  We are in the process of creating partnerships with Clean the World, Partners in Health and MAP International to create synergy that accelerates help for the many needs in Haiti.

Have ideas that could help us in our Haiti efforts?  Reach out and let us know your thoughts at info@waterbrick.org.

This project is being run by a socially-oriented for-profit company.

From time to time, GlobalGiving posts projects run by socially-oriented for-profit companies, whose work includes charitable activities in the public interest. ALL projects on GlobalGiving have a bonafide charitable purpose, and are required to submit extensive documentation and complete a thorough application process. GlobalGiving reviews all applications, and vets the projects to ensure they are legitimate, well-run, and satisfy IRS guidelines for international grantmaking as well as the new voluntary guidelines for anti-terrorism set forth in the Patriot Act. Provided projects meet all these criteria, the IRS allows public foundations such as GlobalGiving to make grants in support of this work.

Projects in this category are required to undergo an expenditure review - meaning they must detail the charitable activities for which they are requesting funding, and provide an actual review of how the funds were spent.
