About the Chicago Benefit

Ivy in Haiti

The show in Chicago was a partial benefit for MESS, an organization in Haiti that provides free medicine, primary health care and mental health support to the Jacmel communities affected by the earthquake. It was an organization that one of our friends who recently visited Haiti recommended as a group doing important work that needed support. You can read more about the experience of a group of Americans who traveled to Haiti to work in solidarity with communities in Haiti on their blog, Jacmel Working Group.  You can also make additional donations via PayPal on the blog.

From the blog:

Sadly, the world is left with very distorted images of the earthquake’s aftermath like the mass burials and people fighting over food and subsequently Haiti’s grieving and healing process is left in obscurity. I dare the media to cover something real and meaningful.
