I've been trying to get on a trip to Haiti. I've applied at Hands On Disaster Response but haven't heard from them yet. The long-time political situation there, along with the recent earthquake, have put a drive in me to do something. Anything. This is another disaster where I sit here in my lucky situation with a computer and a skateboard and camera and an education and a beautiful wife and home and I feel blessed, and I feel compelled to do something to help these folks. But this time I've actually applied for a trip to go help, and I'm looking for more ways to get down there. Sooner the better. If you know of any good ways, or know someone who is going, please email me at mark _at_ skatepunk.net.
