It’s all over the news this week, and the more I follow the less I can say.
Please, consider giving to victims of the Haiti earthquake. Compassion International has made it so simple, you can even fire off a simple text and have a ten dollar donation billed to your cell. Ten dollars. I almost spent that much on one run to the nearest Starbucks for me and some office mates yesterday. Not much of a sacrifice for me, when you think about it…but if all of us were willing to give up just a little, the pain and devastation in Haiti can be alleviated a lot.
Don’t want to give through Compassion? That’s ok. The Red Cross, World Vision, Doctors without Borders, and many many other reputable charities are all accepting donations for aid. Please, though, show wisdom in the organization you choose to donate through. Unfortunately, there are reports out there of donation scams already.
Don’t even have ten dollars to give? THAT IS OK TOO (I’ve been there before, too). Your powerful, spirit filled prayer for the people of Haiti and the relief effort will go a long way in His hands.
