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.

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