On January 12th, 2010, the Caribbean nation of Haiti was devastated by a powerful earthquake. The quake left the country's capital city, Port-au-Prince, in ruins, and killed over a quarter of a million people. While the tremors lasted only half a minute, the sorrow, violence, and disease that erupted in their wake continue to plague the country.

Providing aid and relief to the people of Haiti is a cause that Molly Moon's is passionate about.

Last year, shortly after the earthquake struck, we donated an entire day's worth of sales - nearly $4,000 - to Partners in Health, a non-profit organization providing innovative health care in Haiti.

This year we plan to do the same.

Wednesday, January 12th - the one year anniversary of the earthquake in Haiti - we will donate 100% of our sales to Partners in Health. Come visit us at one of our shops with your friends and families to help us help Haiti.

Partners in Health was founded in Boston circa 1987 to assist existing health care efforts being carried out in Haiti's Central Plateau. Since then, the non-profit has expanded its services to other regions of Haiti, as well as to other countries around the globe. For the past year, Partners in Health has been working tirelessly to provide those affected by the earthquake and the recent cholera epidemic with the care that they need.

Through their work in these places, Partners in Health hopes to achieve three compassionate goals: "to care for [their] patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in [those patients'] communities, and to share lessons learned around the world."

Stand With Haiti
