The 5th Annual Good Earth Home, Garden & Living Show held January 22-24 in Eugene, Oregon is partnering with Medical Teams International, based in Portland, Oregon, to raise funds for disaster medical assistance in Haiti.
Admission into the show is free, show attendees can double Haiti donations because Berg Productions, the show management, will donate up to $10,000 in a match for every dollar donated to Medical Teams International at the show. Medical Teams International volunteers will be collecting donations by check or cash in the lobby of the show and by credit card at their educational exhibit located in the North Hall.
Helen Berg, founder of Berg Productions who produces three Eugene based home and garden shows immediately sprung into action to partner with this organization because of its excellent reputation as they consistently receive a 4 Star rating from Charity Navigator: “Medical Teams International a wonderful organization that can deliver the much needed medical care needed in Haiti. They are so efficient at utilizing donations to provide lasting solutions for people suffering from such a massive disaster as this tragic earthquake.”
As a supporter of Medical Teams International, formally known as NW Medical Teams, Ms. Berg is confident that these donations will be maximized for life sustaining assistance. This Portland, Oregon based non-governmental organization (NGO) was founded in 1979. Medical Teams International served more than 4.5 million people in 53 nations and delivered more than $126 Million in supplies to 45 countries in the last year alone. They also provide dental care to those in need with 11 mobile Dental Clincs in the Northwest and one in Minnesota.
On January 14 Medical Teams International sent a very experienced team of six people to Haiti. They carried medicines and orthopedic supplies – enough to help 12,000 people for a week. An orthopedic specialty team is scheduled to depart on Sunday, January 17.
