    Entrepreneurs of tomorrow are putting their management skills to work to help Haiti after a massive earthquake devastated the country in January. And they need your help to reach their $10,000 goal. 

    The effort is called Hartford4Haiti and Paul Hanson, a senior from the University of Hartford’s Barney School of Business, created it.
     
    The idea came from a class project, Hanson said, and it has become a way for students and other members of the community to help Haiti quake survivors.
     
    ‘That has given me and my classmates the opportunity to help provide support for a noble cause by promoting ‘students 4 students,’ he said.
     
    The effort also incorporates the mission of the Barney School: “preparing individuals to be leaders and decision-makers who are globally aware and socially responsible.”
     
    The proceeds will go to Save the Children’s Haiti Quake Disaster efforts.
     
    The Hartford4Haiti Web site will accept donations until March 31, 2011. Hanson said they hope to raise $10,000. You can make adonation of any size or see other students initiatives through that Web site.
