I live a blessed life. I have a wonderful family, lots of great food, a warm home and running water. I feel so horrible for all the people of Haiti right now, the suffering and loss is so great. I cannot imagine what they must be going through.
Money Saving Mom has coordinated an effort for bloggers to get united in helping out the people of Haiti. There are alot of bloggers participating, and you can go there to comment and she will donate to the cause for every blogger that links back.
How can you give back?
Well, first make sure you’re donating to a legit organization. As sad as this is to say, there are lots of scams out there. CNN has put together a great resource here with a list of legit organizations you can donate to.
Numana– .30 cents provides one meal for someone in Haiti
The Red Cross has an option to donate $10 by sending a simple text message. Just Text ‘Haiti’ to 90999 to donate $10. You can check out more details on this donation here.
A cool idea I read about was donating a weeks worth of the money you have saved coupon shopping. This is a great idea! If you dont have much money yourself to spare, please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers. I believe prayer can go a long way. My family and I will be praying for them as well. I will also be donating what I can and asking you all to do the same!
