All Profits to Cornish-Based Charity ShelterBox
ShelterBox have already supplied over 7,000 tents to the region but many more are needed.
(Excerpt from ShelterBox website) ShelterBox's Response Team has been working around the clock to help set up a camp of disaster relief tents, each of which can house an extended family of up to 10 people. They have a huge number of tents which will provide shelter to thousands of people and give them a chance to start rebuilding their lives. They also have tent encampments set up in several other locations in and around Port au Prince and thousands more ShelterBoxes are on their way to the city. Haiti's President Rene Preval has urgently appealed for more tents to house the estimated 1.5 million people made homeless by the earthquake. The people are very scared to live in the buildings and only feel safe in the tents.
