Thousands of Haitian children have endured amputations as a result of the devastating 2009 earthquake. In a country that is already over run with “economic orphans”, many fear these children will be left to fend for themselves and live a lifetime of despair.
Do1Thing for Haiti is a group of award-winning photographers, journalists, editors, designers and writers who have come together for one mission: To use the power of storytelling to shine an ongoing light into the many dark places that affect our most vulnerable children. We believe that by highlighting one cause, while asking people to do one thing for that cause, great change can occur. Do1Thing for Haiti shines a light on a new generation of amputee’s, the children of Haiti.
Design for Social GOOD will lead this outstanding group in photographing, documentary video shoots, interviewing children and shining a light to promote help and change for these children.

Videotaped and produced by Do1Thing video journalist Chuck Fadely.
