Message from Station Manager Jim Bennett on our Haiti Fund Drive
Matt Cowley about about 4 years ago
Thanks to everyone who gave to the people of Haiti to everyone during our fund drive last Friday. We are stopping the online donations after today and will then direct you to a list of organizations on our website.
We are heartened by raising over $100,000. It will take us until next week to process all the pledges of support. We will also take the time to more fully investigate the concerns some have raised toward Wyclef Jean’s organization Yele Haiti. Rest assured that we want all of the money raised to go to the people of Haiti and helping them. We want to share this comment from Keith Olbermann concerning some of the stories that have been done on Yele Haiti in the last week. We do know that he has been on the ground since the earthquake and has incredible respect in the Haitian community for his good work. As WMNF we are committed to giving the money where it is needed and to make sure there is nothing we haven’t scrutinized. You have trusted us to do the right thing. We indeed will do that and thank you so much for what you have done.
Jim Bennett Station Manager WMNF
