Helping Haiti

I read the reports out of Haiti & want to cry.  It's estimated that 1/3 of the population was killed in the earthquake.  The people are in desperate need of foof, water, and medical care. 

Here are some ways to help:

Doctors Without Borders:

Lutheran World Relief:

Mennonite Central Committee:

You can also text "Haiti" to 90999 - $10 will be charged on your phone bill & will be given to the Red Cross.

Please consider helping.  Even a small donation ($5) can make a huge difference.  Many of us spend at least $5 a day on things we really don't need (lunch, coffee, soda, cigarettes, whatever). Imagine if 100,000 people each gave $5 - that would be $500,000.00!  Imagine if a million people gave that much!

Thank you.  I'll get off my soapbox now (but my heart is still aching for the people in Haiti).
