Post A Story For Haiti

In the wake of the disastrous earthquake that has decimated Haiti, we wanted to do something to encourage people to donate to the massive relief efforts that are underway. So we started Post A Story For Haiti.

Below are links to a number of short stories. Their authors have posted these stories online to read, for free. You can read one or all of them, it’s up to you. More stories will be added as we are sent new links.

And if you enjoy the free stories and want to show your appreciation, please donate to a charity involved in the Haiti relief efforts. Here are a few examples:

Red Cross

These are just suggestions: feel free to donate to any of the other worthy organizations helping in Haiti.

If you do donate, please let us know, either by posting a comment below or emailing us privately. (Any information you give will NEVER be shared: we’d just like to know that these efforts are working.)

To have your work added to the list, please fill out this simple form.
