Help for Haiti

This is now closed. I made a donation on 1/18/10 of $20 to Heart of Compassion. Thanks to those of you that participated!

The country of Haiti and the few people that I know that are there right now have been on my mind and in my prayers often the last several days. When these sort of disasters happen I always find myself wishing that I could do something to help...something big and amazing. There is so much need and I wish desperately that I could somehow ease some of it.

While not big and amazing, you and I can do something. My husband and I have already given a donation to Heart of Compassion Outreach, a ministry that has been helping Haitians for a number of years. But I felt led to do more and so I am going to allow you to help as well.

For every comment left on this post, I will donate $0.50 to Heart of Compassion Outreach who will then use the money to continue to meet the physical needs of the earthquake victims.

There's more you can do as well. We are a blessed people and have been given so much. I encourage you to donate to Heart of Compassion Outreach or other organizations that are helping to meet the needs in Haiti. And then visit Money Saving Mom's site and leave a comment/comments to allow more to be given.

Thank you and may God bless you!
