Help for Haiti (Blog or Leave Comment on this post to help for FREE!)

help for haiti Help for Haiti (Blog or Leave Comment on this post to help for FREE!) I’ve been glued to the cable news stations the past few days watching what is happening in Haiti.

We all watch and wonder what can WE do to help? The situation is very dire in Haiti. Help wants to come but even help is having a hard time because of the logistics.

It is heartbreaking.  There is always hope in these situations to see people coming together, putting aside their political differences, and helping others.

There are many ways to help. Even if you think you don’t have much, you can make a difference.

How?

Give. Even if you only have a few dollars to give you can help make a collective difference.

Pray. Prayers are absolutely free and the people of Haiti need them. No matter what God you believe in, please pray for the people in Haiti and the people helping in Haiti.

Blog. Now is a time we can show the power of social media (blogging, Twitter, and Facebook) and use it for good!

  • Crystal Paine, Money Saving Mom, is donating $10 to Compassion’s outreach in Haiti, for each person who blogs about what they specifically did to help those in Haiti and leaves their blog link on her post.
  • Mercedes, Common Sense Money, is donating $0.25 per comment on her post for Haiti.
  • Erin, $5 Dollar Dinners, is donating $5 per comment or link.

In addition, leave your Help for Haiti blog link on this post today (1/15), and I will personally donate $5 to Food for the Poor when you leave your blog post about how you are helping. If you don’t have a blog, leave a comment and I will donate $0.25 for each comment. (up to $500 total)

    I donated $20 to the Red Cross through their website. I’m broke…what I consider to be broke, but if I really want to I can make an extra $20 somehow. I could save $20 at the grocery store or sell some books. The Haitians don’t have those resources like we do. They need our support.

  • benjamin4362 - January 19, 2010 @ 1:52 pm 65

    I wish everbody just took 5-10 mins out of there day to stop and think about how those mothers the fathers and children are feeling just knowing that if something doesnt happen fast they will die. There’s nothing THEY can do at this point… But WE can, we can help save them. There’s a millon ways to help them, I’ve been giving by (txt pay)by the (internet) (calling in) the amount does not matter. A dollar can and will save someones life. Just because we cant see them dying in front of us doesn’t mean they aren’t.. Please, Im an avrage person who dosen’t ever do this, but 5 days ago I heard about this and I cant stop thinking about how it must feel to have nothing, to know you might not live to see your loved ones. Please help, it will change some bodys life…

    PLEASE BELIVIE YOU ALL ARE IN MY PRAYERS.

  • Jeanne Medina - January 20, 2010 @ 11:18 am 66

    Bargain Briana, you are inspiring me to do more! I’ve been praying ever since I learned what happened in Haiti, but wasn’t sure how to contribute. Now I’m ready to move on an idea had a while back.

    I’ve been saving all our family’s nut cans for ages. Now I have a huge box of them.

    I’m going to print up some labels for them saying ” We CAN Help Haiti and CHANGE the outcome!” Then my children and I will give them out to everyone we know,( keeping a list for weekly pick up).

    In this economy, lots of people don’t feel they can afford to help much financially, but nearly all of us have coins that weigh down our purses and pockets, that could be doing some good for people in much more difficult circumstances than we are in, here in the U.S. There’s never been a better moment to Love Thy Neighbor!
