Retail = Rebuild
Though the devastating earthquake struck over two months ago, Haiti is barely beginning to rebuild and will need aid for years to come. There have been many calls for donations, especially through organizations such as the Red Cross, but you can also support the recovery effort just by shopping.
The Haiti Poster Project has launched what they describe as a “collaborative effort by the design community to help effect change through our work. Signed and numbered, limited edition posters have been donated by designers and artists from around the world. All money raised will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.” Browse the stunning collection here.
If fonts are something you’re interested in, the Society of Typographic Aficionados have compiled an ampersand-only font. The project is called “FontAid IV: Coming Together,” and you can read more about it here. The font is only $20 and all proceeds benefit Doctors Without Borders.
American Eagle compiled a CD available in stores and online here. The CD costs only $10 and all proceeds benefit the Haiti recovery effort. Artists include Beck, Snow Patrol, Of Montreal, Vampire Weekend, and 13 more.
