Haiti donations

Do your bit for Haiti in Dubai this week...

Here in Dubai we love to eat and drink. This week, we're doing it for a good cause.

In the wake of the tragic earthquake in Haiti bars and restaurants in Dubai are doing their bit to help.

From Hive to Haiti takes place tonight (Sunday) at Hive, Souk Al Bahar, where every single dirham taken across the bar will be donated to the cause.

In addition, a donation matching the amount collected in bar takings will also be contributed by bar owner Robert Norton.

Moved by the suffering and devastation, Norton hopes friends and business colleagues will also make private donations.

"The final sum could be several times that of Hive's takings if my persuasive powers are successful," said Norton.

"The public is not being asked to do any more than simply enjoy Hive's hospitality for the night in the name of a good cause."

And tomorrow night (Monday), Okku at The Monarch are also playing their part with their own charity fundraiser.

The 'Okku Loves Haiti' event will see proceeds from the contemporary Japanese restaurant's dinner being donated to the UAE Red Crescent to provide much needed aid to the devastated Caribbean country.
