Local Haiti relief

We've provided a link to national organizations where you can donate to help the people of Haiti, a page called Haiti Relief.

However, a number of local groups are organizing events as well, and as we get them we'll post them here.

Here's one from several Francophone groups:

Two days of concerts to aid the victims of the earthquake in Haiti
In solidarity with the Haitian people, several francophone organizations located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, will present a benefit concert.
 (Jim fiddler, The Once, The New Zazou, andrew james o'brien, colleen power, ian foster, les rose des vents.)

Saturday January 23rd
2 to 6 p.m. 
Centre des Grands-Vents, 65 Ridge Road

Over the course of the day, more that ten different artists will perform. All proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army's Haiti Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund, including all revenues coming from ticket sales and all profits from the bar. A representative of the Salvation Army will also be on hand to receive donations for which tax receipts can be issued.

This event is jointly organized by the Association communautaire francophone of St. John's along with the Conseil scolaire francophone, the Federation des francophones and the Reseau culturel francophone de Terre-Neuve-et-Labrador. Technical assistance is being graciously provided by Atlantic Audio Visual.

The Saturday afternoon concert at the Centre des Grands-Vents will follow an event organized by the Memorial University Student Union and the Canadian Federation of Students on the evening of January 22nd at the Breezeway. The Friday evening event will support the efforts of Oxfam Canada and the Humanitarian Coalition.
Tickets cost $15 per person ($10 for children 17 years and younger)
