Runners, sponsors and donors wanted urgently!
NEW YORK (March 31, 2010)—The earthquake that hit Haiti Jan. 12 triggered a full-scale response by Concern Worldwide, the international humanitarian agency—but delayed preparations for one of Concern’s major annual fundraisers.
All the proceeds from this year’s Concern for Haiti Run
on April 10 in Central Park will go to support emergency efforts in Port-au-Prince. “With the rainy season about to bring more misery on earthquake survivors who have little shelter, donations are crucial,” said Siobhan Walsh, Concern’s Executive Director.

Plastic bags are one of the most littered items in history. Many plastic bags become airborne litter tangled in tree limbs, clogging up storm drains or billowing like a sail on the ocean. As a result, they have been dubbed the "national flower" in South Africa because so many can be seen flapping from fences and caught in bushes. Plastic bags also have become the most common manmade item seen by sailors at sea.

During those trying times, the March of Dimes website was the place that I turned to for information, guidance, and hope.
