Jan 12. Read, Do, Watch.

Because these statistics are so damning, and so troubling, and so real:
Haiti by the Numbers, Three Years Later

Because this explains why:
Rebuilding in Haiti Lags After Billions in Post-Quake Aid

Because this is short and almost funny:
8 Reasons The Earthquake In Haiti Was Gravy For U.S. Contractors

Because this story is refreshingly different:
A view of post-quake Haiti, on the run

Read more here:
Because this is written by Haitian social activists, about trauma and death and a commitment to fight for lasting change:
January 12, 2013: What are the Memories? Where are the Lessons?

Because this is one of the things they're fighting for (and one of the most glaring failures of Haiti's so-called 'reconstruction'):
400,000 Homeless Still Wait For a Plan: Support Housing Rights in Haiti

Because cholera kills, and the UN has yet to acknowledge responsibility for introducing it to Haiti:
End Haiti's Killer Cholera Epidemic -- UN Action Now! 
Because Haiti is still oh so much more than an earthquake and ill-spent aid dollars:

Good post, Lex. I was moved by the video (although I only caught a fraction of the words), thinking of you, our time there and the quake. So proud of what you do.

I came across your site while searching Google for blogs talking about growing/gardening equipment and related keywords and was wondering if you'd be open to doing a sponsored blog post.

We have a site that growing/gardening equipment and are looking for more exposure online.

Our budget for this is initially $20 for the post and we would give you the blog post (gardening related & already written) as well as a picture to post. All you would have to do is post it.

Here's a sample post we did on another blog:

We're really just testing out different bloggers, and if you bring some good traffic, we're totally open to doing an annual banner ad!

Also if you have some other blogs, please send them over and I'll take a look and we might be open to doing a post on those as well!

Let me know if you'd be open to this!
