Help for Haiti

Haiti

Thanks to everyone who commented yesterday.

I don’t need to tell you about the devastation in Haiti.

I don’t need to tell you we all need to come together and do what we can to help.

I do want to tell you how you can help. For each person who leaves a comment today 01/15, my husband and I will donate $.25 to the American Red Cross.

My heart goes out to the families who have suffered great losses and to those who are still waiting to find out where their mother, father, children, brothers, sisters or friends are. I cannot imagine their agony. I pray that they will be able to come through this catastrophe stronger and more faithful.

So take a moment and leave a comment.

If you have the time, head over to Money Saving Mom for other bloggers who are working together to raise money for Haiti. Your comments today and support of these blogs can make a difference!

    I thought I should write – of course you can donate to whatever organization you trust, but if you want the funds to go straight to the field, this is a good place.
    http://www.bhm.org/bhm/lang-en/haiti-earthquake-news-and-updates.html
    Baptist Haiti Mission is an established ministry in Haiti which has a hospital and schools. Samaritan’s Purse – another well-known Christian ministry has teamed with BHM to help in this time. You can see up to the minute updates and/or donate through the web address above. Just an FYI.

    It is so great that you bloggers are doing this. We are not in a place to give financially at this time, so it is great that we can still help with donations.

    Thank you. I have cried and cried so much watching the suffering of the people in Haiti. Ordinary Americans have stood up and have reached into the wallets and pantry’s to help. I am so glad to know that God is alive in the hearts of Americans. Again, bless you and your family as well as the many coupon bloggers who have taken a stance in helping!!

  77. We know some folks that have been living down there for a number of years, ministering to the Haitian people. So we sent them a donation to allow them to try to meet as many needs as possible.

  78. This is such a generous offer god bless you and your family!

  79. Come link up or comment at Savings & Stewardship, where we’re donating $1 to World Vision per entry!

You could also suggest Donors can text “Haiti” to 90999 on their cell phone to send a $10 donation to support Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.  The mobile giving effort raised more than $3 million by Thursday morning, and all money raised goes to support Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. I donated yesterday using this method.
