The other night when I first heard of the devastating earthquake in Haiti, my first thought was that they were so poor to start with, I just didn't see how they would be able to survive such a catastrophic loss.
The key to any country or peoples overcoming any type of loss is for them to band together with the strong and fight. We are the strong, they are the weak and it's our responsibility to help the lesser people of our earthly home. Whether they are 5 miles or 10,000 miles away, they are our neighbors and are in desperate need of help.
Several ways to help:
1. Join with Bloggers Unite for Haiti and make sure to share the link to any post you create in the effort to raise awareness and funds.
2. Text YELE to 501501 to contribute $5 to Yele Haiti.
3. Text HAITI to 90999 to contribute to the Red Cross.
4. Check local news for sources close to your home where you can drop donations other than money. Yesterday we were able to drop food off to Lifechurch in Allentown to help them with the orphanage they run in Haiti. Do likewise, even if you don't think it's much - every small bit adds up and makes a difference.
