The Children of Cite Soleil

This is the harsh reality of a Haitian slum. I really don't even know what to say.

But... I love this organization's concept. It's not a Christian charity (which is all we'll typically support) but their donation process is really cool. A child could use their $5.00 allowance to buy baby bottles or a family could forego Christmas gifts and pick different items to donate (concrete block, HIV medication, diapers etc...). It certainly personalizes the whole process and I can see how that would be very appealing to people wishing to do some good.
