help for haiti Haiti Drive:  Leave a Comment on This Post to Donate for Free

Over these past few days my heart has been heavy after hearing the news coming from Haiti.  See, 11 years ago a devastating hurricane hit my home country of Honduras killing thousands of people and destroying a lot of the infrastructure through out the country.  When I heard the news coming from Haiti I couldn’t help but thinking of everything I felt 11 years ago while watching the devastation on TV and with my own eyes,  the people lost, those alive with their belongings destroyed or wondering if everyone in their families had survived.

Eleven years ago people around the world open their hearts for my country and their people and it is not my turn to do the same for the people of Haiti.  You can help too:

1)  Lift the people of Haiti and their families abroad in prayer.

2)  If you can’t give now consider saving a small amount of money to give later.  Unfortunately help will be needed for a long time for the people of Haiti to recover from this.

3)  You can give for free here, right now.  My family is pledging $1 for every comment left in this post up to 500 comments.  For a total donation of $500 that will go to the Red Cross.

Thank you for your comment and for helping me help others.  Please remember to share this with others so they can also come here and comment and help me reach my goal.

    Thanks so much for doing this! I have been to Haiti before and seen what little they have and this earthquake has devastated the people there so they have even less than they had to begin with.

  75. Thank you for donating. I am also the Treasurer of an orphanage located in Beudet, Haiti which was destroyed in the earthquakes (all of the children are alive). The children are currently sleeping in tents because of this. All of our food and supplies was also destroyed. We are accepting donations of any amount to help with food, supplies and rebuilding the structure. Please just click on my name above to be taken to the website where you can donate securely via PayPal.

    We donated to the US fund for UNICEF and also to a local (Kentucky)-based charity called Ten Kids whose goal is to provide a safe home, education, etc. to Ten Kids http://www.tenkids.org/. I like the idea of giving to an organization meeting general needs of the people of Haiti and to one meeting the needs of specific children. We are so blessed–I can’t imagine the losses of the Haitian people.

  101. NBCMom says:

    My family donated yesterday to FOOD FOR THE POOR, based in Coconut Creek FL (we live in Buffalo NY but heard a speaker once at Mass.) In the fund-raising world where it is acceptable for charities to use up to 25% of all $$ raised for “administration costs,” FOOD FOR THE POOR gives 97.7% directly to those in need!!!!! Incredible efficiency when every single penny counts. Their website is http://www.FoodForThePoor.org if you are interested. They also have a list of specific non-perishable food items and water that can be donated if you live in southern FL.

    My husband’s co-worker lived in Haiti for eight years. She told us this morning that all her family members are now accounted for, and for that we give thanks. We hope we can do more.

    SwagGrabber posted a deal about a $40 subscription for 40 issues of All You the other day, just wanted to share. Only $1 per issue but then $10 of that $40 goes to Haitian Relief, which makes it even less and helps a good cause.

    I’ve been to the Dominican Republic twice (which shares the island with Haiti). I have several friends from Haiti who have lost family members. My heart is breaking for all affected by this horrific tragedy. I’ve been a supporter of Compassion for many years… and sent a donation for Haiti to their ministry. Just wish there was more I could do.

    God bless you for doing this. I just watched more footage on the news tonight and to see little tiny babies and children coming out of the wreckage alive after being buried for 6 days straight with no food or water is both amazing and horrific all at the same time. Prayer is a powerful tool in all times…esp. these.

    Thank you for doing this!

  455. Jeanne says:

    I’ve been praying ever since I learned what happened in Haiti, but wasn’t sure how to contribute. Now I’m ready to move on an idea had a while back.

    I’ve been saving all our family’s nut cans for ages. Now I have a huge box of them. I’m going to print up some labels for them saying ” We CAN Help Haiti and CHANGE the outcome!” Then my children and I will give them out to everyone we know,( keeping a list for weekly pick up).

    In this economy, lots of people don’t feel they can afford to help much financially, but nearly all of us have coins that weigh down our purses and pockets, that could be doing some good for people in much more difficult circumstances than we are in, here in the U.S. There’s never been a better moment to Love Thy Neighbor!

    Jeanne

  456. Joanna says:
