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.

If you are looking for organizations that are accepting donations check out:

Sovereign Grace Ministries
Compassion International
American Red Cross

    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.

    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.

    How awesome is this! I can’t even imagine what the people of Haiti are going through right now but i hope they know that we are all thinking about them and praying for them. I haven’t done a lot except the text Haiti to 90999 for a $10 donation to the Red Cross. I have put the link on my facebook page and on a forum that i frequent quite a bit. Thanks for giving me the chance to help in this small way and for doing it.

    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.

    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!
