Thank You Indianapolis Colts and World Vision

Yes the Colts lost the Super Bowl, but people in Haiti who are suffering in the wake of the earthquake last month, are the benefactors. Thanks to a partnership with World Vision, which annually collects all post-season donated apparel from the NFL, Super Bowl clothing will be donated to Haiti. According to David Krichavsky, NFL director of community relations, "For years, World Vision has helped us to ensure that no NFL apparel goes to waste. With the enormous needs in Haiti and World Vision's long-term presence there, we know that these goods will go to very good use." And there's even a local connection--all donated goods are processed and shipped from World Vision's international distribution center in Pittsburgh. For more information on this program, see World Vision.
