You’ve likely heard the news that yesterday, a major earthquake hit the Caribbean nation of Haiti, devastating the capitol of Port-au-Prince.  Officials are reporting widespread chaos, collapsed hospitals and schools, and a death toll rumoring to be in the thousands.  Upon this solemn news, we’ve reached out to our friends and allies in Haiti, and in the neighboring country of the Dominican Republic, to see how the 350 family can help out.  Here are just a few of the beautiful pictures from October 24th of Haitian communities taking action to find solutions to climate change and build resilience to the kind of natural disasters their country is prone to:

At the time of the earthquake striking, Haiti was still recovering from a terrible hurricane season in 2008, when 4 hurricanes made landfall within 30 days, causing widespread damage to the country with already notoriously weak infrastructure and an extremely impacted environment.  The problem is, in a world above 350, these sorts of events are almost certain to happen again, and with more frequency and force – making it all the more important for a global movement to work together to help those most vulnerable amongst us to build resilience, and respond to these disasters.  And of course to work harder than ever this year to put our planet on a course back to safety, back to 350ppm, to safeguard the survival of all nations.  Please, share what you can with these relief efforts:
