UPDATE (9 Feb 2010): I've canceled this event. Given the amount of snow on the ground and that expected in the next 24 hours, I think there's little chance that the labyrinth will be clear enough for a safe walk. And I'm not in a position to do any shoveling (doctor's orders).
I do plan to mark the one-month anniversary, though, with a finger labyrinth at home. You can do the same online at either of these sites:

To mark the one-month anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, I am organizing an open labyrinth walk on Saturday, February 13, at Georgetown Waterfront Park in Washington, DC, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
The wide paths of this beautiful labyrinth, the most publicly visible in Washington, DC, offer an invitation to open the heart to those in need. It is located at 33rd and K Streets NW. Those who wish to walk the labyrinth may arrive any time during the event and walk the labyrinth at their own pace. Participants are urged to make a donation to the American Red Cross or other Haiti-related charity of their choice, in the name of compassion, hope, and healing.
I will be present to facilitate the labyrinth walk, which will take place regardless of the weather (unless the labyrinth is buried under snow).
