A story about Darleen in Haiti

One thing stands out about this Haiti email from Free the Children. I think you'd pick it up even without the red marker all over it...

Not only does Craig make this feel real... "hours ago I returned from a week in Haiti", but he tells us about Darleen, a 12 year old whose parents were lost in the earthquake. Heart wrenching stuff.

The email isn't perfect (needs a stronger call to action to accompany Darleen's story), but it was the first contact I had from an organization on the ground that shared the story of one of the victims, a real, named person. No doubt there are others, but this was the first I witnessed.

Well done Craig and the Free the Children gang. For your brilliant work, and for sharing Darleen's story with us.
