The devastation that has rocked Haiti has left me almost speechless. My heart aches for all the people who are experiencing their worst nightmare. I couldn`t imagine such a blow. To see the images flash across the screen brings tears to my eyes.
Tradegy always brings the best out in others who aren`t living in the middle of that moment. One of those people is Annie of Glitteryourworld just one person trying to help make a difference in life of many others. Here`s what Annie has to say
"The last few days I have watched all the news about the disaster in Haiti....These poor people need help...Last night I donated through my paypal account to Save the Children ...I want to encourage any of you that can..to please find some way to donate..Tens of thousands of people need help....90 percent of this country is poor....and are in terrible trouble now..the earthquake was horrible.
If you will go to your paypal account and click the button that says give to the earthquake fund on the side....donate ten dollars....then forward me the receipt that says you made a donation..I will put your name in a hat and draw a winner...the winner will get $50.00 in supplies from my etsy shop...Its a win win for everyone.....Haiti gets much needed help....and you have a great chance to win some lovely supplies.
I hope you will take me up on this offer, thank you for helping in any way you can....Annie"
I couldn`t resist and have been blessed this week with many auctions ending in sales. I don`t have much raising four girls and living by the week paycheck,but I knew I could manage the 10 dollars. If it helps one child even with covering the cost of antibiotics my heart is full.
I can`t even begin to imagine the suffering of the haitians. I as a parent couldn`t imagine having to sit by and watch my child suffer or even die do to lack of medicines as simple as an antibiotic or dehydration. I pray for them all and hope they continue to pull people out alive. I was watching Anderson Cooper last night and was so saddened to see how doctors and nurses had been ordered to just abandon injured and critical people. They we`re being treated in make shift tents outdoors with IV`s hanging from trees. I hope we would never have to walk a path that they are currently forced down. I`m complete in my heart if $10.00 saves someone.
Mother nature can deliver huge wrath and it could happen anywhere.
Another generous gal helping to encourage others is Patty of Toadhollowprim she is adding these beautiful hearts into the raffle. They are gorgeous!
And lastly so eloquently put by my good friend Doreen
"For those of you unable to give money - you should never feel bad or disappointed in yourselves!
The power of prayer and emotional support is equally noble!
Many communities are collecting clothes & blankets - some schools & community centers are asking to write letters or cards to show the Haitian people that the people in American deeply care about them.
Your local news station will most likely have an on-line list of what you can donate & where to drop off!
A simple card sounds silly - but when you've been left with nothing but despair - love in a note can truly inspire Hope!"
