Helping Haiti

Posted by at 9:56 am in News | Permalink

Haiti By now, I’m sure you’ve all heard about the devastating earthquakes in Haiti. After the 7.0 quake last Tuesday, the airwaves have been flooded with scenes of flattened buildings, homeless families, and crying children. But there have also been scenes of hope. And even through numerous aftershocks — including a 6.1 quake yesterday morning — we’ve witnessed seemingly impossible rescues and joyful reunions.

These are the stories that relief workers focus on to keep them going strong, both in Haiti and in the U.S. And theirs are the stories that Scholastic Kid Reporters around the country bring to you this week.

Across the nation, Kid Reporters have been talking with folks doing their part for the relief effort.

For the full articles, information on how you can help, and continuing coverage of the crisis in Haiti, visit the Scholastic Kids Press Corps special report.

    The People of Haiti need our help, my school is having hat day today. If u bring a Dollar OR MORE u can wear a hat. The money we raise from this Goes to help Haiti. I also Agree that Scholastic should have a fund raiser that schools can participate in. Then the Money Can Go to the people in Haiti!!!!!!! Please they need help!!! Even If they Survived the quake they are struggling for food, water, and medical attention. I say Every book we read donates a bottle of water, a can of food, medicine, or a simple dollar.
