As I ate my warm dinner last night and crawled into my warm bed, I was more thankful for these simple provisions than I have been in a while. With the disaster in Haiti, I have been reminded of just how fortunate I am. I truly am blessed beyond what I deserve.
When I see the pictures on the news and online my heart breaks. I have wondered what I can do. Understanding that the recovery of this earthquake will take years, I know I am praying about how I can be a part of the restoring process in the days, weeks, months and years to come. But today there is one thing I can do. I can donate. Yesterday in church our pastor reminded us that everything we have starts out as money and everything that we will send to Haiti starts out with money. So as you pray about how you can be a part of the restoration of Haiti, I pray you will consider being a catalyst and donating your money to help a country that has so little.
There are so many places you can donate, but if you are looking for a place where you know your money will
actually end up in Haiti, please check out my friends at HOPE FORCE INTERNATIONAL. They are a non-profit who specifically responds to disasters. Because they specialize in disaster relief they can get the money you donate to place where it can make the most impact. I am priviledged to call the wonderful team at Hope Force personal friends of mine. Please check out their website and see if this is the right place for you to help in the disaster relief.
Can’t wait to see what a difference we can make!
