*Excuse the rare sobering post from us, ya’ll, but this is important:
Tuesday, January 12 at noon the worst earthquake in 200 years – 7.0 in magnitude – struck less than ten miles from the Caribbean city of Port-au-Prince, Hait, the poorest country in the Caribbean. Right now 50,000 people are confirmed dead and 3 million homeless. Our government, in tandem with countries around the globe are uniting for what President Obama has called, “One of the largest relief efforts in our recent history”.
Haiti desperately needs our help. The American Red Cross has devised an amazing plan called mGive. Just text ‘Haiti’ to 90999 and you will automatically donate $10 to the relief effort. (If you receive texts back from them simply text back ‘Stop’). For direct donations, I’ve found that The Clinton Foundation’s website makes it the easiest to donate.
We’ve all had a rough year, trust me. But this is America and when catastrophes occur, the world turns to us for support. Do what you can. Every little bit makes a big difference. Thanks for your time and your generosity.
Thanks to Boston Big Picture Blog for these photos. We never borrow from this site but I think they’ll make an exception in this case.
