It seems there's been a great outpouring of support for Haiti in the wake of the recent disaster there. I know a few people who know people in Haiti, and they seem to be missing. Please help by donating via the Red Cross or visiting one of the benefit shows this and next week. If Punk music isn't your thing there are plenty of other venues with other types of music also having benefits for Hatian relief.
<rant> Also, I know this is a bit pretentious, but please try to think about all your superfluous purchases this week in the context of a person in Haiti. Take all the money you're spending on the things you don't *really* need and try to give some of it to a relief organization that can make good use of it. Whatever you spend at the bar, try to spend the same on the Red Cross or some other respectable aid organization. And of course remember that after Haiti is back on it's feet there are plenty of other people throughout the world that also need your help (including those at home). </rant>
Not North News is a new site bringing news about the Florida punk scene to Not the North. Seems interesting, hope it gets big!
