Hope for Haiti

Yesterday SHOULD have been Awareness Wednesday, and I had a very nice post about relief in Hati. However, a program I was using to auto-post… well… does NOT auto-post, and I lost the entire thing. Ugh.

So as not to overlook the powerful loss and need Haiti is experiencing, I’m combining posts. Below is a list of websites to charities providing help to Haiti, and I explain what each organization is doing to help. Your quotes for today will follow the links.

Forget not that we, as in Americans, lost people in this devastating earthquake. More importantly do not forget that we, as human beings, lost other human beings in this horrific natural disaster. While the earthquake was natural, there is nothing natural about the heartache and suffering the people of Haiti are enduring.

Please visit the following sites for more information as to what they are doing to help, as well as how YOU can help these charities help the broken souls of Haiti.

The American Red Cross Red Cross is sending food and supplies to Haiti, providing clean drinking water, meeting health needs, and donating shelter supplies. To donate $10 via text message, text “HAITI” to 90999.
