DU raises money for Haitian relief efforts

University of Denver students, staff, faculty and community members can make donations to Haitian earthquake victims through DU’s Living and Learning Communities.

“If everyone donated a dollar, we’d raise $10,000,” says Jami Duffy, program coordinator of the Social Justice LLC. “It’d be amazing to see what the University community can do around this issue.”

The small Caribbean island nation of Haiti was rocked by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on Jan. 12. The number of casualties from the quake is feared to be near 100,000.

Donations will go directly to the Lambi Fund of Haiti, a nonprofit dedicated to building democracy and sustainable development in Haiti.

“What’s so great about the fund, is their mission is ongoing, so whatever we contribute to them will help with sustainable development as Haiti rebuilds,” Duffy says.

To make a donation, visit the DU LLC office in Driscoll University Center South, Suite 1, or contact Jami Duffy at 303-871-7428 or
