There are numerous projects being launched in the restaurant community to provide help for the Haitian people. See the list provided by ABC News. It covers 6 pages.A spokesperson at UNICEF pointed me to TapProject.org. It is a way for the restaurant community to get involved.The following is an excerpt from their about page:What is the UNICEF Tap Project?In 2007, the UNICEF Tap Project was born in New York City based on a simple concept: restaurants would ask their patrons to donate $1 or more for the tap water they usually enjoy for free, and all funds raised would support UNICEF’s efforts to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.Growing from just 300 New York City restaurants in 2007 to thousands across the country today, the UNICEF Tap Project has quickly become a powerful national movement.During World Water Week, March 21-27, 2010, the UNICEF Tap Project will once again raise awareness of the world water crisis and vital funds to help the millions of children it impacts daily. All funds raised support UNICEF's water, sanitation and hygiene programs, and the effort to bring clean and accessible water to millions of children around the world.There is a map showing participating restaurants, a registration page, FAQ's and a resources page.
