Wings of Hope in Haiti

The organization Wings of Hope is a non sectarian organization based in the St. Louis metro area which provides pilot volunteers to fly humanitarian missions using small aircraft. They have missions all over the world. Right now, they are flying missions into Haiti and are functioning under an emergency budget and are seeking donations to continue their efforts. Since the begining of the crisis they have flowing over 20,000 pounds of cargo from both the Dominican Republic and Pureto Rico. Their emergency funds are rapidly being used up as high fuel and drug costs are taxing their usual donation base.

You are welcome to visit their website and see if you would wish to donate to their cause.

They are a well established charity with hundreds of volunteers and missions in 43 countries.

Their efforts in Haiti are detailed in this report from the local NBC Affiliate in St. Louis.

I am interested in CNG vehicles because they are good for the environment and aren't powered by dead Marines. I still have a little hope for the world. Read the musings and enjoy.
