An number of capable, experienced and internationally-focused individuals, groups, non-profits and networks have joined together to form the International Disaster Response Network (IDRN) to better collaborate and coordinate response efforts.
Since January 12th, IDRN partners have been working diligently to maximize efforts in Haiti. Through our efforts, we have received many volunteers, offers and solid support. However, getting people and supplies TO those people hurting the most continues to be a huge problem. Where the IDRN efforts are in Haiti, it is becoming increasing desperate & a true RACE AGAINST TIME. It's not an uncommon problem, however the current Haiti situation is particularly bad.
In the midst of this, a small coffee shop in the Colorado town of Windsor is hosting a big event this coming Sunday, Jan 31. This coffee shop was a rallying point when that town survived its own tornado disaster in the recent past. With many of the IDRN members based out of Colorado, this event is receiving significant statewide media coverage.
The hope and belief is that the RACE AGAINST TIME idea can be used as a recurring fundraising mechanism for the IDRN and provide small groups/businesses with a way to help engage in disaster response support.
