I love Simon and Garfunkel, LOVE them, but I love Bon Jovi MORE!! I am a child of the 80’s after all.
I have Haiti on my mind and they have a great need for help. There are so many ways to help if you are able, if not, prayer’s will do.
I learned a few things today that I either didn’t know, or had forgotten. Haiti is an island shared with the Dominican Republic. The slaves staged a revolution which eventually allowed the Louisiana Purchase to occur. This was vital to our young country. Haiti has an 80% poverty rate and they are ill equiped to handle this crisis. I heard the Haitian President is homeless now and is sleeping at an airport. Goodness.
I can’t stop thinking of the children, the families, the elderly, the injured, and the remaining survivors. There are many ways to help if you feel moved to. Here are a few links I found helpful.
Craft Hope –
is setting up an Etsy shop for you to buy home-made goods. All proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders. You can help by donating your goods, or by purchasing any of the items.
Sew Liberated – helpful links to contact your representatives for stopping deportation of Haitians while they try to recover.
Doctors Without Borders – they are already in Haiti providing care to Haitians. They want your donations if possible, or at the very least, help spread the word.
International Red Cross – They are helping provide medical care, as well as trying to reconnect families.
One more: Chris Sacca – lots of good info here, plus read the comment section for more.
Every effort helps, please spread the word.
