White House Blog Highlights JDC in Haiti

We are excited to share a White House blogpost recognizing JDC’s work in Haiti and our partnership with USAID (the US Agency for International Development). The post, penned by Joshua DuBois, Special Assistant to the President and Executive Director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, follows the one year anniversary of the tragic January 12th, 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

JDC has maintained ties with the American government throughout the course of our history as we’ve provided humanitarian aid to people suffering worldwide ... from a famine in Ukraine in the 1920s ... the aftermath of the Holocaust ... or one of the century’s worst natural disasters in Haiti.

We tip our hats to the Government Affairs Committee of JDC’s Board of Directors, established last year with the aim of expanding our links to and cooperation with the US government.

And special thanks to the Jewish Federations of North America and the tens of thousands of individual donors for their critical support of JDC projects in Haiti, now highlighted by the White House and USAID.

Logging In With One of Your Social Web Site Logins

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.

To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.

Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.

In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.

You can break the connection between your accounts at any time.
