Haiti Petition

Dear friend,

Thank you. Your name has been added to the petition and your comments will be delivered to Finance ministers, the IMF, World Bank, Inter-American Development bank and bilateral creditors.

Time really is of the essence. Please help us spread the word to your friends and family so they know what's going on. You can just forward the sample letter below.

Spreading the word is critical, but please only pass this message along to those who know you -- spam hurts our campaign.

--The ONE Campaign Team

Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

Subject: Take action and help the people of Haiti


Like millions of people around the world I've been shocked by the terrible events in Haiti.

Only now is the true scale of the disaster emerging. Reports now suggest as many as 50,000 people may have died, with hundreds of thousands made homeless.

The work ahead to recover from this tragedy is immense. So here's our goal: $890 million for Haiti. That's how much Haiti owes to the International Monetary Fund, the Inter-American Development Bank, and a handful of others.

Sign the petition below to ask Haiti's creditors to act quickly and cancel Haiti's debts:

As Haiti begins to rebuild we can help by lifting this debt.

Together as ONE we can make a difference!
