Nearly 1 million people lost their homes when the earthquake hit Haiti. Since the disaster, I have been overwhelmed by the immense generosity of people everywhere – but I know our reaction cannot just be about short-term survival.
It is time to address the extreme poverty in Haiti and the deep and urgent needs of poor people everywhere.
Through our annual Hunger Cleanup we’re working with students to raise money for the long term rebuilding in Haiti, as well as to combat poverty locally in our communities.

The Hunger Cleanup, happening April 10th, is one of the largest student-driven days of service in the country. We will raise funds for Oxfam’s Haiti relief work while keeping the spotlight on poverty – in Haiti and in our own communities. Sign up today.
