It’s the holiday season again. The Christmas season is starting, as is Hanukkah, and Eid al-Adha was just a few weeks ago. Americans just celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday and most of us have a lot to be thankful for. A big part of all these holidays are about recognizing the needs of others, not just here but wherever they might be. Neverest is doing its part through Giva-Knit and the soon ready Hydro-Life products. But we also believe it is about the communities that we belong to and the people we connect with. Please spread the word and holiday cheer.

Haiti, to understate the situation, has had a tough year. Last January, a devastating earthquake took more than two hundred thousand lives and the affects continue to cause widespread suffering. Tropical storms including Hurricane Tomas ripped down makeshift shelters. And election-related violence has become a daily occurrence. Now, a deadly cholera epidemic has taken hold of the heart of the country. It’s the last thing the people of Haiti deserve. Already hundreds have been killed and thousands have been hospitalized. The suffering from the disease is terrible. It’s caused by a small bacteria (shown here) that is relatively easy to prevent. But too many people lack clean potable water and other basic supplies like soap. Most unfortunately is that the situation will get worse before it gets better.
