Haitian Relief Content Drive

We've all heard stories and seen images of the devastation suffered by the people of Haiti in the aftermath of Tuesday's massive earthquake.

In addition to tens of thousands of deaths, aid groups have estimated that as many as 3 million Haitians are currently injured or homeless. Thankfully, an outpouring of support is coming from nations, organizations and individuals overseas - and the momentum is continuing to build.

From today until next Friday, January 22nd, Associated Content will be sponsoring a submission drive in support of the Haitian relief effort. We want you to help spread awareness of the situation in Haiti and encourage the people you reach to lend a helping hand.

Check your Assignment Desk – we just released an assignment calling on our amazing community of contributors to create a unique piece of content about the situation in Haiti and your own community's response to the tragedy.

For every submission we receive toward these assignments, Associated Content will donate $5 plus matched performance payments to the International Rescue Committee – up to a total of 500 submissions. The IRC needs funds for their Haitian campaign now, so please be sure to submit your pieces before Monday’s deadline. Click here to read more about this incredible organization’s response to the crisis.

The modest contributions we make together can have a profound impact. Thank you for being part of our team!

Check the AC Blog, Facebook page and Twitter profile for updates on our Haitian Relief Content Drive in the coming week.

Excellent move by AC. I look forward to writing my articles this weekend.

I think this is awesome of AC. I claimed that as soon as I saw it earlier but had to come post a comment here when I saw this post.

Fellow writers: I encourage others to do this as well. It's just one article (something that comes fairly easy to us writers) and it can help save someone. At least we have homes to write these articles in...

This is great. I wish I could do more, but at least I know I am helping by writing and promoting my article. I don't have the money to donate myself, which makes me sad, so I'm so happy that AC is doing this!
