JAMPACT RESPONDS TO HAITI’S CRISIS

New York, NY, January 14, 2010: JAMPACT stands ready to help mobilize support for our brothers and sisters in Haiti. Though the focus of JAMPACT’s charitable initiatives has historically been Jamaica, the devastation wrought by this earthquake tragedy demands that we re-orient our focus and galvanize all available resources to assist, and that we do so intelligently in order to minimize waste and fraud. JAMPACT will immediately donate $2000 to the Haitian consulate to aid in the relief efforts. In addition, we will work with the Haitian Consulate including by funneling to them any additional financial or in-kind contributions from you our members and friends. Accordingly, we urge you to take the following course of action with us:

Monetary donation:
Send text message to 501501, and $5.00 will be donated to www.Yele.org.
Donation will be billed to your phone account.
Deposit donations to:
