Sadly, as you probably already know, this past week Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake. It’s difficult to imagine the extent of damage in this already poor country. I’ve spent the past few days wondering what I can do to help.
Thanks to the web and social media, millions of dollars are being raised. As a teen blogger, I realized that I, too, can play a role and raise money. That’s why I decided to set up a contest to generate ideas that can help Haiti. Here’s where you come in:
How to enter:
1. Leave a comment with your own idea on how to help.
2. Vote on your favorite idea by clicking the thumbs-up button on the comment.
$100 $500will be donated towards the idea that receives the most votes. For example if the winning idea is for someone to go spend the summer in Haiti helping rebuild, the money will go towards that cause.
Update: I started this contest with $100 to donate towards the winning idea in support of Haiti, and I’ve been amazed at the outpouring of additional contributions. A huge thanks to all the donors, from me, and I’m sure those suffering in Haiti.

Ben Lang ($75)
