Buy a Print. Support Distaster Relief in Haiti. Please.

Jan 14, 2010

Unless you live under a rock inside a cave in the remotest area in the world, you know a huge quake struck Haiti on Tuesday, and much lies in ruins. The New York Times just posted some before and after satellite images, and it’s a horrible thing to see. Buildings gone. People gone.

It pains me to think about what if that were to happen to me or my family.

To this end, I’m donating all proceeds from World Progress Report orders, along with this month’s FlowingData revenues, to UNICEF’s relief efforts. The Report, after all, is an effort to relate to the rest of the world. It only seems fitting. It’s not much in the grand scheme of things, I guess, but at least it’s something. As they say, every little bit counts.

Again, I’m taking orders for one week – through January 21. Do some good and get something good too. I’m including How America Learns with all orders now. Buy a print now.

Or if the World Progress Report just isn’t your thing, you can donate directly to UNICEF.

I mean, seriously, there are 27,000 of you + me. We can make a big difference together.
