Haiti Earthquake

This past Tuesday was a devastating day for the whole world, but especially for Haitians, who suffered a terrible earthquake that destroyed a big part of their country...
The 7.0 magnitude earthquake happened around 5pm Tuesday afternoon and it took everyone by surprise. Thousands of people died and others were trapped inside buildings and under the rubble... it is so sad to see all those images of people in Haiti.. such poor people, such poor country...
It is also very emotional and amazing to see how the world comes together in the hopes of helping this country recover from such horrible loss....
There are several ways in which we can donate to the Haiti relief fund, one of them being via text messaging, anyone with a mobile phone and an account with a major wireless carrier can text the phrase “Haiti” to the number 90999 and donate $10 to the Red Cross. That amount is charged to the donor’s cellphone bill.
Please, if you haven't done so, try to donate some money for Haiti. If donating is not within your capabilities, please continue to pray for all people in Haiti and all Haitians families in the US and all over the world!
