Dear DIME members,

We're all some of the luckiest people in the world. We're members of a vibrant international community. We enjoy music, we have internet connections and even if we struggle for it, we have the things that make life more than just a subsistence affair.

As a community, DIME would like to offer support and help to the earthquake victims in Haiti.

For one week (beginning as of today, Thursday, January 14, 2010, and ending at next Wednesday, January 20, 2010) all donations made to DIME will be forwarded to a charity organisation (Bündnis Entwicklung Hilft, a consortium of the five German charity organizations Brot für die Welt, medico international, Misereor, terre des hommes and Welthungerhilfe, see http://www.entwicklung-hilft.de/nachrichten+M5478f8a2eb7.html) for use in the Haiti Earthquake relief efforts.

Your DIME account will be granted VIP status accordingly, but all funds collected during this period will help earthquake victims.

Please support this community effort according to your ability.

Thank you very much in advance!

This was seeded for me by unicrayon last August, but it seems to have disappeared.
Now that I've figured out how to do this, here it is again. I can't remember who made
the artwork, but it's very nice. Thanks whoever you are.
