As I layed in bed last night trying to fall asleep, all I could think of was Haiti.

There I was...

Nice soft bed.
Comfy pjs.
Roof over my head.
Midnight snack available, if I wanted.
Glass of water next to me.
I knew my friends and family were safe.

I am so blessed.

Anything I could have to complain about is nothing compared to what those in Haiti are going through. I can't even imagine what it would be like to go through their suffering. Not knowing if your loved ones are safe, no food, no water, no place to call home anymore...

I wish I had some sort of skills that could help them, but I'm afraid I don't. All I can do is try to get the word out there on how to help.

Here are a few different websites where you can donate to help Haiti:

World Vision

Compassion

Mercy Corps

Habitat for Humanity

Unicef

Red Cross


Please, take the time to check them out and donate!

I sit here with my bottle of chilled lime-flavor sparkling water and think about those people who haven't had any water for days! I could sleep on the ground and go without eating for several days, but I can't imagine how I would suffer without enough water. My heart goes out to the mothers who are desperate to provide for their children. I hope to send a small donation for relief. Thanks for your list of reliable charities.

you can definitely help out bc you know how to sew! I made a small quilt made of 10 by 10 squares for a little kid that I'm going to donate to Project Linus to be given to a child in Haiti.
