HAITI RELIEF COLLABORATIONS IN NYC!!!!



HI EVERYONE!!!

Ok Pretty World Inc has joined forces with students from SIX different schools and TWO other organizations to facilitate a major outreach in NYC to collect, pack, and ship Relief Items to Haiti as soon as possible.

To dispel the rumors. Yes it is almost impossible to ship anything to Haiti right now as an INDIVIDUAL, so OF COURSE THE FIRST COURSE OF ACTION IS TO DONATE MONEY TO A REPUTABLE ORGANIZATION, Email me for a listing, Once you donate what we are doing is aggregating items together across all the participants and working to organize a mass pick up and ship to Haiti VIA The Bedford Haiti Association in Brooklyn who is working directly with THE RED CROSS, one of the few organizations allowed to export at this time.

We will also be reaching out to AMERICACARES.ORG regarding their ability to SHIP.

Additionally we have been in contact with Councilman Mathieu Eugene in Brooklyn and Manhattan Deputy Borough President Pierre-Louis for their political support of our efforts.

Below is a list of approved AND NECESSARY items to ship.

CLOTHING:
Sneakers
Socks
Underwear - BRAND NEW (AND FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS)

If you have items to give please contact me or Mekaelia Davis. The Bedford Haitian Community Center has asked that items arrive packed in barrels already ready to ship to help expedite the process so if you only have a small amount of items please contact us so we can compile them with items from others.

Additionally we will be accepting items Saturday January 16th at Columbia University, Uris Hall 1st Floor from 10am to 3pm, thats 116th and Broadway in Manhattan, during the Pretty World Inc Seminar

Sunday January 17th some friends of mine will be driving around picking up donations throughout the city from people who want to give but cannot bring to Columbia on Saturday and

Starting Monday January 18th there will be a Disaster Relief Drop Off box at Columbia University, 1st, 2nd & 3rd Floor. Locations of the drop off stations at other schools will be released as the information becomes available.

Please email or call me if you would like to help by giving donations, packing barrels, driving to help pick up items or would like to collaborate your efforts with ours!! There is power in numbers people!
