Haiti and how you can help

I'm here to do my part.

I feel for the nation of Haiti, and could not imagine having to go through something as tragic as what is going on right now. I have seen refuge camps, and let me tell you these poor people, especially the children are living in hell right now.
Imagine your life turned upside down, separated from loved ones, with no way to know if there ok (your own kids), living where there was nowhere to go to the bathroom so your walking in feces and piss, no where safe to sleep, no food, disease/ injuries in a tropical environment with little medical help and little to no medical supplies, contaminated water, and little to no hope.

How sad.

If you want to help, here are a list of charitable organisations currently working in the country. If you are religious, please say a prayer for the suffering.....

If you don't have money, you have a voice. Tell others how they can help, start a donation drive wherever you live or work, make flyers, sell cookies, hassel golfers on the way in to the club (because we know they have, if your in a band, do a benifit show, go to your local hospital and/or clinic and ask for donations of medical supplies, anything. Rally around the goodness in your heart, and make a difference. Even though this didn't happen to you, does not make it ok to ignore the suffering going on, take action and please help.
