I hope you will have a special collection for Haiti this Sunday. As of this post (1/13/2010 12:00EST) I haven’t seen formal responses from the UUSC or UUA. I’m assuming this will come shortly.
Your members will be ready to offer support this Sunday. Its in the news now. Call for a special collection now. That or at least announce that you will be having a collection or starting a Haiti Relief fund.
Not to talk growth in the midst of a major disaster, but lets. Being relevant in the world, making a difference in the lives of those who are suffering. Great growth strategy. No need to wait for national UU relief efforts to be announced. Call on your members and friends now.
