  1. For those of us wanting to contribute to sustainable reconstruction done by local people, here’s another nonprofit to consider:

    Architecture for Humanity:
    Raising $100,000, when coupled with pro-bono design services and material donations, will allow for the building of more than just basic shelter, but the construction of schools, infrastructure and medical clinics. With a more holistic and sustainable approach of reconstruction, a truly worldchanging idea, the funds will help to build beyond simple dwellings to live but create real communities for life to grow, rebuild and renew.
