I just found out that many bloggers are banding together to help those in need. It is so wonderful to witness the response to this terrible crisis. For my part, my family and I will donate 50¢ to The American Red Cross for everyone who leaves a comment on this post or links up below through January 17th. Please visit Money Saving Mom to see ideas for helping those who are suffering in Haiti and for a list of more blogs you can stop by to leave a comment on.
It is so sad to witness the devastation that has happened in Haiti. As a nurse, I wish I could hop on plane and join those providing care to the injured. Of course that is not a possibility, but there are plenty of other ways to help! Amber at Coupon Connections NW is asking us to consider giving some of the money from our grocery savings to help with the relief efforts and for fellow bloggers to spread the word. Click here to access the CNN website. There you will find links to the highest rated non-profit charities that are accepting donations to help those affected by this horrible tragedy. I know Money Saving Mom also has something planned that she will be announcing tomorrow.
I am reminded once again by how blessed I truly am. I pray that God is with all of those in such desperate need in Haiti right now!
Here are some ways you can easily donate. Every little bit does help!
- Donate to the American Red Cross here or call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
- Text "HAITI" to 90999, which will charge an additional $10 to your phone bill for the month as a donation.
