HAITI EARTHQUAKE RELIEF BAROMETER UPDATE


InterAction Member Organizations Have Committed and Raised a Total of $456 Million

Washington, DC (February 19, 2010)— InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based international
development and humanitarian nongovernmental organizations, has updated its Haiti Earthquake Relief
Barometer to reflect the new total of $456 million raised in private donations from the American
people. The barometer reflects aggregate totals, not donations to individual groups, and will continue
to be regularly updated.

In addition to the barometer, InterAction has also developed an NGO Impact in Haiti Fact Sheet to offer
some specific details about the scope of members organizations’ work in Haiti, organized a twitter feed
for those interested in staying up to date on recovery efforts and pulled together an assortment of
related documents.
