This year is proven to be a great success for Nhojj time and time again.

All of Nhojj’s hard work is finally paying off at least in the eyes of the mainstream media. The LGBT community as a whole has always supported Nhojj.

QBC BREAKING NEWS: HELPING HAITI

January 14, 2010

Greetings Everyone,

It was brought to my attention, sending packages to Haiti through UPS for free is not exactly true. I just got off the phone with Jennifer, a representative from UPS foundation. She states, the disaster is so bad that it is NOT possible for UPS to send packages in this matter. Please take the time to read the press release below directly from The USP Foundation. It clearly states what they are and have done to date. Jennifer informed me that the USP is working very closely with American Red Cross and other organizations who deal with crisis as such. The stated, they are aware about the mis-communications facebook users are referring people as to sending free packages directly to Haiti. The best thing to do is send out a letter to your groups and friends clarifying the situation and informing them how UPS is helping and how they can help.

If you have any questions etc. the number to The UPS Foundation contact info. is listed in the press release.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please continue to keep Haiti in your prayers. PLEASE just do something even if you pass this information along or add to the list of organizations they are DIRECTLY helping the people.

In peace,

Angel L. Brown
