A Heart and a Plane for Haiti
Many of us, including the members of Creed, have been moved by the crisis in Haiti and contributed to the cause. Scott has taken it a step further, traveling with his brother- and sister-in-law to Haiti to personally assist the people in recovering from the devastating earthquake. If you follow Scott on Twitter
, you've seen his updates about their efforts. They're working with Plane to Haiti
, which shipped in 10,000 pounds of supplies, and interfacing with several other missions and organizations while on the ground. The official press release
talks about the Plane to Haiti mission, and you can see Scott's photos
and a video
about the work being accomplished.
We're very proud of the work Scott is doing, and are working on a way that we at PBF can contribute to the relief efforts as well! We will update with information as soon as plans are finalized - or, go to planetohaiti.org
and donate there!
