Hurricane Matthew pummeled Haiti, Cuba and The Bahamas last week. The slow-moving storm caused massive damage and killed more than 800 people in Haiti alone.
As the storm hit Haiti, nonprofits and donors mobilized on Mightycause to help lift the island nation.

- Cliff Avril, Seattle Seahawks defensive end, set up a fundraiser to help Mission of Hope Haiti.
