Talking about beauty seems pretty insignificant when you see the heartbreaking pictures on TV of the devastation in Haiti. Just as wrenching is to read Twitter; to hear from those who have family or friends in Haiti. Please take a moment today to make a donation.
Here are three worthy organizations that are helping with earthquake relief:
YELE HAITI EARTHQUAKE FUND
Text YELE to 501501 to donate $5 via your cell phone
AMERICAN RED CROSS
Text HAITI to 90999 via your cell phone to make a $10 donation.
(800) REDCROSS (800-257-7575)
DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS 888-392-0392
You can find many more links to organizations, resources and updates on Google Crisis Response.
In times of crisis, no country is more willing to help than the US. Americans are the most generous and giving in the world. Disasters know no boundaries, so as we go about our weekends, let's do what we can to help the victims of this earthquake. Instead of the latte that I usually buy myself on weekend mornings, it makes me feel better to know that I can make a donation to this cause and do some real good.
