Ways to Help Haiti Locally

Several things are happening around Rockville this weekend and next that offer a chance to do something good, financially and otherwise, for Haitians struggling in the aftermath of the earthquakes.  One, sent to us by Jacquie Kubin, whose son is involved, is KidzCare For Haiti Fundraiser with live music, a moon bounce, food, raffles, and prizes, at Bauer Community Center next Friday, Jan 29.MCFRS-trained Haitian firefighters  Volunteers age 10-17 are needed this Saturday (I believe they can earn SSL hours).

I'm also very proud to say that a group of 13 Haitian firefighters which my friend Ben Stubenberg was instrumental in bringing over for training with MCFRS last May are now in the forefront of the rescue operation in Haiti, and we wish them well.  Ben has been active in Haiti for years and is VP for TractorShare which provides tractors and other tools to empower farmers in developing nations (their primary focus is Haiti, where assistance is needed more than ever, if you feel moved to donate).

Thrive Yoga is also collecting donations for Haiti as part of their Yoga to De-stress class at 3:45 this Saturday (part of Free Yoga Day USA).  This is not part of Yoga Day but is also happening this Saturday and sounds very interesting: a HypnoBirthing Childbirth Class at Family Hypnosis.

Music & Theater

There's lots of local music and theater talent to take advantage of this weekend, from our former neighbor Keegan Corbey at Austin Grill on Friday to Debby Boone at Strathmore (also Friday) to Rockville Little Theater's production of The Foreigner, at F. Scott Fitzgerald all weekend to the annual Israeli Filmfest at Tikvat Israel.  Something for everyone.
