LGBT charity contributes to Haiti earthquake relief

The San Francisco-based Rainbow World Fund is among the myriad of organizations around the world that continue to raise money and support efforts to aid Haitian earthquake victims.

The RWF, which has funded numerous projects to improve nutrition and develop access to safe drinking water in the impoverished Caribbean country since 2004, has made a $50,000 donation. The organization has also partnered with CARE, which has provided food, potable water, tarps, blankets, medicine and other items to those who survived the Jan. 12 earthquake.

"This is the time to help," Jeff Cotter, executive director of the fund, said. "Even though what we're seeing is really tragic, the situation is not hopeless. Everything [we] can do will make a huge difference in Haiti's recovery."
