Yesterday I received an email from Emergency Architects Australia. The EAA fund is an alternative to the Architects for Humanity fundraising tomorrow at the many Pecha Kucha nights. The EA relief effort differs from the AfH effort by having people working on the ground in Haiti now, evaluating damaged buildings. The AfH fundraising is being directed to ready to go projects. Here are some excerpts from EAA’s mail, with minor edits.

Here is another new initiative to assist in bushfire-affected areas.
From the blurb: “Design Aid is a register of architects, builders, carpenters, interior designers and other associated trades who are willing to volunteer their expertise to individuals, families and community groups in rebuilding their homes and buildings.”
