I just received this e-mail from the Facebook group, Sikh Sewa:

HAITI Needs YOU: Please Volunteer or Donate for the UNITED SIKHS Haiti Quake Relief Appeal

Poster on: http://www.facebook.com/l/f68de;sikhseva.blogspot.com/2010/01/haiti-needs-you.html

You have seen the devastation of Haiti on TV. Now please switch on to their needs. The UNITED SIKHS team , headed by Lt Col Gurbachan Singh and 4 volunteers including doctors, has arrived in Haiti through the neighbouring islands. They have found that looting and devastation is painful to describe. They have set up a base camp and and wish to set up a langgar service (hot community meal) and distribute food and medical supplies urgently.

See the UNITED SIKHS appeal poster attached . Please put it up an your local Gurdwara or community centre.
We need your help.

If you can volunteer in Haiti please Join UNITED SIKHS at http://www.facebook.com/l/f68de;www.untedsikhs.org/join and you will receive an automatic email acknowledgment with a link to a health history form and a volunteer application form for field projects. Kindly fill both forms and email them to volunteer@unitedsikhs.org asap.

If you would like to donate , you may do so online at http://www.facebook.com/l/f68de;www.unitedsikhs.org/join

, or post a cheque, payable to UNITED SIKHS, to us at PO BOX 43799 8SS

We also urge you to put up the attached poster at your workplace and gurdwara and help in fundraising this Sunday . Take the initiative to collect the donations and post them to us with the donors details so we may issue a receipt.

(Mai again.  Maybe it's just my tired, old eyes, but I can't read the poster.  Click on this one for a larger version, not as pretty, but at least I can read it.)
