Newsflash: Raising Money for Haiti

We have had long ties with Haiti dating back to David's days as a photojournalist freelancing for the New York Times and Linda's coverage of Haiti for ABC NEWS. We have visited there so many times and have many friends and colleagues there--it is a place very dear to us.

David recently participated in an all day photography mentor session sponsored by the Foundation Workshop. He was one of several photographers who donated their time to mentor for young wedding photojournalists during the marathon. They raised $8,000 for efforts to help the victims of Haiti's earthquake.

Our son Ryan's fifth grade class held a bake sale and raised $1500 for Haiti.

Both donated the money raised to Doctors Without Borders.

Here are two of the hundreds of images David has taken in Haiti over the years.

We were both there on this day in Haiti's history. David was honored to have the lead image on the front page of the New York Times.

New Year's Eve

"What Are You Doing New Year's Eve"

When the bells all ring and the horns all blow
And the couples we know are fondly kissing.
Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Ooh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year's eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's Eve?
