By now we've all heard of the devastation to the people of Haiti. My heart goes out to them and I join with millions around the world in praying for them.
When I was little, I think around 5-6, my mom traveled to Haiti to be the guest speaker at a medical symposium. To this day, I still clearly remember how she described to me the conditions in Haiti and the level of poverty that she witnessed firsthand.
We've been blessed with so much in our country, especially readily available disaster relief help. It's our turn to PAY IT FORWARD.
There are many ways to give. One simple way is via text message from your phone:
You can text "Haiti" to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross. You will be billed on your next phone bill. You can also visit the Red Cross website to learn more.
You can text "disaster" to 90999 to give $10 to Compassion's disaster relief program. You will be billed on your next phone bill. Find out more about it HERE and HERE.
Kelly of Kelly's Korner is matching donations by giving $1 per person who donates (regardless of what organization you donate through) and leaves a comment on her post HERE up to $1000.
It's our turn to help others in need. Let's all join together in lifting the people of Haiti in prayer. Imagine how much assistance we can provide if each of us donates just $10. Won't you join me?
