You can't go anywhere on the internet right now without noticing something about the earthquake that shook Haiti. I got a wake up call when I got on the internet this morning. Yesterday I was having a bad day, you can read about it here , just feeling sorry for myself. Over at Money Saving Mom and numerous other blogs, they are putting together Help For Haiti.
Could you imagine not being able to find your family or friends? Having nothing to eat or drink? I sit here in tears thinking how could I be so down when I have food, shelter, a semi healthy family, nice warm beds and a comfy couch to relax on. All those things were taken away in a matter of seconds for those people. Many, many lives were lost in a split second while others are suffering.
I will be donating money to Compassion International to help these people in need. I hope that you will too. Maybe you could skip your weekly pizza night out, or take $20 from you grocery money. Whatever it is that you can donate will go far in Haiti. It only takes $35 to feed and water a family for a week.
So please set aside your worries and sorrows for the day. Please take the time to pray for these families and if you have the extra money send a little. I will be sending an extra $1 for every comment that is posted to this post today and tomorrow. Please leave a comment on what you are doing to help out in Haiti.
Have a blessed day!
