iFixit Donates $1,000 for Haiti Earthquake Relief

January 13, 2010 Site News — Miro

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit right outside the city of Port-au-Prince, decimating most of the structures in its path. Several aftershocks followed suit, further damaging the surrounding area.

The people of Haiti need our help, however large or small, at this catastrophic time. iFixit has just donated $1,000 to the Doctors Without Borders foundation to help those unfortunate enough to have been near the epicenter.

Our hearts go out to the lives and families of those who had to endure this tragedy. If you have the means, please donate any which way you can.

  3. You all are fantastic!

    Doctors Without Borders has long been an organization I support, and, although I donated money this morning to another organization, I know my DWB donation will also be hard at work in Haiti.

    You’re the best!

    Thank you for your compassion in this time of great need.
    I have recently done business with you and found that experience rewarding as well. You have outdone yourself by exhibiting generosity and compassion for others. Bringing attention to this devastation is vital. You have gone above and beyond.

  5. I’d like to echo the other comments about your generosity and sense of social responsibility – I am of Haitian descent and while I don’t pretend to speak for my people, I do speak for myself and my Haitian family.

    I’d like to add that I’ve always appreciated and promoted your mission as integral to addressing the digital divide. Your resources help to empower people by demystifying technology and making technical assistance accessible and affordable.
