Here’s the latest:

When I went to bed at 4 AM this morning, I’d already responded to 70 people who’d reached out to say “I want to go help Haiti.”

When I woke up an hour ago, my inbox had 130 new messages.

Everyone’s looking for a way to help Haiti; they just need someone or some group–like Matador–to organize it.

I’ll be updating you all day with developments related to the trip, and will be posting ways you can help even if you can’t travel with us.

The big update is this:

I’ve just gotten off the phone with JetBlue representatives, who are working on logistics. We should have an update this afternoon around 5 PM EST.

If you’re on Twitter, retweet this message:

Critical #Haiti update: @JetBlue is currently working on logistics. Stay tuned. THANK YOU @JetBlue. We can do this!

In the meantime, I’d like to share some of the volunteers’ stories with you:

“I am arriving to Puerto Plata on Friday for a previously planned vacation with my boyfriend. We are willing to join your group to volunteer if it is safe and feasible (we have a car) so I look forward to seeing how that plan comes together.”

“I have no idea where to even start but I did a quick google search and I have a HUGE feeling in my heart that I need to get to Haiti as soon as possible to do whatever I can to help these people. I have little money, but I have been a dairy farmer my whole life and I am more than able to work long and hard for these people.”

“Please keep me posted on possible volunteer opportunities in Haiti. My husband and I are adopting a little boy named Jeffry from Haiti, and had the opportunity to travel there in September. The people of Haiti and the country itself hold a piece of my heart. I have a current passport and am willing and able to do whatever I can. Thanks for your care and concern for Haiti!”

“Hi, my name is Joanne, and I am very saddened by this terrible and devastating event that has happened yesterday. I wouldn’t want anything more than to go to Haiti and help as much as I can. I am CPR certified and have almost complete training as an EMT. Please keep me up to date about possibly going over to help. Thank you.”

I’ll be updating again after talking with JetBlue this afternoon and will post within the hour about supplies that we’ll be collecting.

If you’ve emailed me about volunteering and haven’t heard back from me yet, I WILL be in touch. Hang in there!

Thank you for your amazing show of support. Haiti, I hope you’re ready for Matador!

    Fast work.

    Julie, you really are incredible! Your energy and efficiency in getting this together is inspiring. I’ll keep checking in for updates to see what we can do to help.

  • http://www.soultravelers3.com soultravelers3

    Excellent! As someone who has been to Haiti ( & still touched by that experience) and also lived through a 7.1 earthquake ( near the epicenter in a devastated area) in 1989, I am so grateful and happy to hear this!

    As a traveling mom with a recovering paralyzed arm at the moment from a bike wreck, I won’t be going, but will support the efforts in other ways behind the scenes.

    I’ve lived through bad hurricanes, tornadoes, life threatening storms at sea x2, floods & fires, but bad 7+ earthquake is the worst I think. The after shocks go on for a looong time & make it VERY hard for victims to recover & heal, plus inhibits rescues because danger persists.

    Heartmath and TAT have quick and easy techniques to help with the emotional trauma that you might use …even with volunteers.

    Prayers to all!

  • http://originalnajeema.blogspot.com Najeema

    Yes, Julie is incredible. Prayers to all affected and I pray that a successful trip comes out of these efforts. Julie, my bag is packed. It would be great to connect with you again.

    Julie, amazing work!! Matador is definitely getting things done and I am extremely proud to be a part of such a great network of people. I’m been pushing the message forward and hope we are able to get this thing off the ground. Remember, if there is anything else that needs to be done…shoot me an email, tweet, whatever. I’m ready, willing, and able.

    Peace,

  • philip

    do you have to have some qualifications or be certified in anything to join the relief effort? I feel its rediculous to require qualifications to provide relief in a time of crisis. I am an able bodied person and I am willing to help in any way possible and have the next 5 days completely free of anything.

    Julie – echoing everyone else’s sentiments: you are amazing! Best of luck!

    Julie,

    I was just searching the internet to see if there was anyway to volunteer in Haiti and I stumbled on your site. I’m not a doctor or EMT but I am willing to help. I spent a year vounteering in Costa Rica in the early 90′s and lived thru a 7.3 earhtquake 40 miles from the epicenter. I can most likely help for 3-5 days. Pease keep me updated. I dont know what else to say except that I am in good shape and can endure a lot.

    Be well and I wish you the best of luck with your mission

    Hey Julie,

    I´ve already emailed you, but I wanted to write again and say how much I am grateful for you starting this movement. From the moment I woke up this morning I have been looking for a group to sign up with. I stumbled upon MatadorNetwork through a Google search and am glad I did. I am now a member and look forward to being apart of this community. I have been travelling in Costa Rica for the last three months and am now in Nicaragua. The minute I heard about the tragedy in Haiti I knew I would be over there no matter what helping with relief efforts. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help from here. I am ready to fly over to the island at a moments notice. Please keep me updated.

    Julie,
    What you are doing is inspirational. I didn’t sleep last night thinking about the fact that I cannot donate money but I’m a retired rancher near Laramie, WY and in excellent shape with a variety of life experience (EMT, Veterinary, Pharmacy, etc) and would get on a plane ASAP if some group/organization could help me get there. I’m very very experienced in emergencies and want to do something.

  • Nancy

    I live in Ohio and am willing to go to Haiti as a volunteer, please can anyone tell me how i can do that. I feel helpless here!!

  • A.C.

    As previous posters have mentioned, my own efforts to volunteer to travel to Haiti have been hampered by the strict requirements of many agencies.
    I understand some of cost and liability issues and I’d be more than happy to sign a waiver and pay my own way.

    I lived through and volunteered during disasters (albeit far less devastating ones) including mudslides and tremors in Costa Rica, and hurricanes and the Caribbean and know that in a time of crisis an extra pair of hands is always needed.

    I’m a well-traveled and experienced volunteer whose determined to go to Haiti one way or another! But of course, I’d more than welcome the opportunity to work with a group of like-minded individuals.

  • Nancy

    How can I volunteer in Haiti. I speak French and I speak Creole

    I don’t have much money to give, but I’d like to go if at all possible. I am CPR, First Aid and Waterfront Lifeguard certified, hopefully I could be an asset. I’ll keep an eye on this site for opportunities. In the New York area and prepared to travel whenever asked.

    We all want to help, but…

    …what Haiti really needs is people who are trained in the medical field as well as search and rescue! I hope people with these skills are given priority in this trip.

    The rest of us who are not nurses and doctors or trained in emergency medical response should help with donations, of supplies and funds, and prayers.

    Good intentions are not enough. Haiti needs trained professionals, funds, and supplies.

    Julie,

    And everybody else willing to risk quite a bit to help!

    I am with you… I was an EMT in the 90′s in SLC, Ut. I almost went to medical school while at the University and was talked out of it by some disgruntled doctors. I wish I hadn’t listened.

    When I saw the mass suffering that is going on and will continue to go on in Haiti I just knew that if there opens up a way for me to get there to help the people…

    There will be a FLOOD of medical supplies… However, thousands to tens of thousands more will die if they don’t have the knowledge of how to administer valuable first aid supplies. They also need hope. You wonderful people are willing to do this. I’m with you!!! We’re close in proximity to Haiti and we can be EXTREMELY useful in my view if in an organized fashion we walk the streets supplying first aid and even more so, HOPE!

    IF I AM NEEDED, I’M READY TO GO. And on fire to work hard to help.

    Email me… Or call me Julie… My phone number is in my email.

  • hunderson

    hi again
    i could also translate…i am from port au prince. the situation is dire. i understand that right now the most urgent help needed is the help of medical professionals and food/h20 etc…
    but i think a helping hand (humanitarian efforts) will encourage these people to stay strong and fight for their lives.
    i’ve been watching cnn since yesterday when the initial shocks occurred. Family of friends and my own family members have passed. I understand how bad things are – i also grew up there and so i feel that this is a personal struggle for me as well.
    Please pray for Haiti and all of the victims. Ask your employer or any other organizations you might be involved with either directly/indirectly to help to the cause. So far i noticed that UPS, BOA, Coke, Google etc…have all contributed $1million to the cause. We can also text 501 501 to the yele foundation and $5 will be charged to your phone bill. There are so many organizations like oxfam, care, unicef, red cross etc….
    I am proud of all of you for coming forth to help and my brothers/sisters “THANK YOU”.

    Your site was listed on a community psychology and social action listserv and I immediately wanted to offer my support to your work in Haiti in any way that it might be needed. I am a clinical psychologist with an extensive background in trauma and crisis work. I’m also healthy and able-bodied and willing to roll up my sleeves to do whatever manual labor is necessary.

    I read your post today (1/14/10) and am sensitive to the fact that organizations in Haiti need to assess what is needed before receiving a fleet of volunteers. I am willing, able, and ready to go to Haiti at a moment’s notice and I am also able to do stateside work. I’m in Los Angeles and can lend my help to any tasks that might be needed here in the States (specifically, Southern CA).

    Thank you for all that you’re doing. Please add me to your list of volunteers.

    I see that the most important qualities to have for helping Haiti in this situation is medical and security experience. Both of which I don’t have, but I am in the advertising business and could help with any computer technical applications like building websites, taking photos, creating video or establishing wireless networks and IT administration. I’m never above getting my hands dirty either so any job that helps the situation I would take. I’ve been a movers man, a line cook in Havana, and a construction worker for shopping malls.

    I’m very interested in volunteering to go to Haiti to help with the recovery effort in any way possible. I was the RSO for the Canadian Embassy for a period of 10 months and I had the pleasure of going to Port-au-Prince Haiti last year. I have been stuck to the tv watching the news ever since Tuesday and my heart goes out to them! If I can help I would welcome the oppurtunity!!

    Hello,

    I’ve found your website through google. I’m an economist with 2 years of volunteering experience for several Seattle non-profits. I’m not working right now, but can volunteer my time to go there and work as hard as needed to help. I can’t offer a donation which is why I would like to go there and help. I’m bilingual in Spanish, and fit (can support rescue, rebuild efforts.)

    Thank you!

    • Julie Schwietert

      Hi, Joel-

      I know that you, like so many others who are responding to our initial call for volunteers, feel desperate to get to Haiti to help. It’s so painful to sit here in the States and watch what is happening on TV. However, everyone we have talked with on the ground in Port-au-Prince, including aid organization representatives and transportation representatives from American Airlines have said that it is just not feasible right now to bring in more people, regardless of how well intentioned. We are continuing to stay in touch with the representatives and will notify Matador readers when that situation changes. Please keep checking back with us by visiting http://www.matadorchange.com. Thank you for reaching out and stay energetic and strong- Haiti is going to need us for a long time.

    Hi All,

    I am in the same situation as most of you. i want to go there and help but relief organizations are not accepting volunteers. So, i am thinking of starting my own group. I am currently in New York City. I am looking for people who will be willing to fly into Dominican Republic (on your own expense) and head over to Haiti by land. Once we get there, I am sure we will find many relief organizations with whom we can partner/volunteer. I am open for suggestions as well. Let me know if anybody is interested. My email is deepkohli@gmail.com.

    Thanks.

    pls contact me if i can help the haiti people. I love children and all my life have been one who has always put others before myself.

We have held many events to raise money for those less fortunate and those who have had health trageties in there families. To be asked to help in anyway in the orphaneges or lending a ear and shoulder to those hurt or that have lost loved ones would be a miricale in its self.

When i first heard about the Earth Quake i wanted to go and help. If there is anything i can do please let me know. That would be greatly appreciated!! :)

  • Brian Walker

    Have emailed a plethora of people and I really want to get over there and help!!

    Dear Friends and Family:

    How are you doing? I hope that God is doing as many wonderful things in
    your life as He is in mine. I had a wonderful year at Harrison High School, and
    feeling that God is calling me to do more for the world around me.

    I want to share with you a challenging ministry opportunity that God
    has presented to me. From July 18 to July 24, 2010, God has offered me the
    chance to go to Haiti with my youth group from Burnt Hickory Church of Christ.
    This 7-day mission trip will involve work projects, earthquake clean-up, and
    reaching out and spreading gospel to the Haitian people while also learning
    more about the people there and their culture. To prepare for this incredible
    opportunity, I will attend Mission Camp – a simulated third-world environment where
    mission principles are taught and lived out.

    While God has opened up a door for me to develop a greater heart of
    compassion for His people around the world, the exciting part is that you will
    be able to share in this compassion in several ways. First, you can help pray
    for me and my fellow youth group. We will need prayers that God will prepare us
    for our visit and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Haiti.
    We will also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this
    time, we need to raise $1,000 each to attend this trip, and that is
    quite a challenge!

    Another way you can be involved is to help provide that financial
    support. Would you consider supporting me with a donation? If you feel led to
    contribute, I will need to raise all my funds by July 10 in order to pay for
    airline tickets and other items.

    Please make checks payable to Burnt Hickory Church of Christ. Whether
    you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your
    support is greatly appreciated! I look forward to doing God’s work in Haiti and
    letting you know all about how God has worked through this team when I return in
    July.

    God Bless,
