Haiti Earthquake Challenge #2

Countless Haitians need immediate medical assistance from yesterday's massive earthquake. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) area medical facilities have been severely damaged, but MSF has set up clinics in tents and some 900 Haitians have already been treated. In the works: a 100-bed makeshift hospital, and an additional staff of 70 are expected to arrive in the coming days. Haiti Earthquake Challenge #2 To help MSF with their relief efforts, The Spud will match the first 25 $5 donations to their Haiti Earthquake Response. That means if you donate $5, we'll match that amount—doubling your impact. Donate directly to MSF and forward your gift confirmation to We'll match the $5 donations in the order we receive the confirmations, up to the first 25. The match will be completed within 24 hours and we'll forward you the matching gift receipt. The Spud thanks Annalise Nelson, Rick Thiounn, Thomas Chadefaux, Kai Chan, Nilesh Parikh, Lisa Kim Holbrook, Daniel Holbrook, and Rivka Golomb for sponsoring this challenge. UPDATE: This challenge has closed.
