It's approaching a week after hurricane Matthew hit the shores and land of Haiti, which devastated the country still reeling from the impact of a massive earthquake in 2010. The outcome of hurricane Matthew added further tragedy, with various sources reporting the death toll between 400 to 900 people.
The East Oakland Collective along with The Matatu Festival, The MoAD Vanguard, Rehab Online Magazine, and Third Space Media-- answered the call to provide support to Haiti and will be donating the proceeds from the Ayibobo! Creative Symposium to reputable and on-the-ground relief efforts in Haiti.
Ayibobo! is a Haitian colloquialism spoken in joy to exclaim glory or hallelujah. We speak light and glory over the country and its people. It is only right that we help our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
