Knitters Without Borders is a group of knitters that support Doctors Without Borders by donating what we can and encouraging others to do likewise.

Doctors Without Borders staff members are already on the ground in Haiti

Things are bad there --- as someone who lived through the 1989 Loma Prieta Quake in the San Francisco Bay Area, I know what it feels like when the ground below you feels like jello

I was blessed to live in that area because we were prepared -- by building codes, by being in an area that had financial means -- and by being lucky in the location of the fault line and the depth of the quake

the people of Haiti have none of those things

I just donated --

you should too

even a single dollar from each of us can make an enormous difference to the suffering there

go and do it --- you'll feel good about yourself for making a difference
