Poor Haiti

So much sadness has fallen upon these poor people. When a tragedy such as this happens, I feel so helpless if the face of such overwhelming sadness. There are many organizations to which you can donate money, and many Etsy sellers are featuring special donations. I discovered from my lovely fellow blogger Kim at The TomKat Studio, that you can actually TEXT in a donation to The Red Cross. To do that, simply follow these instructions...

Text HAITI to 90999 to donate $10.oo
Your donation will be added directly to your phone bill.

See the Red Cross website for more info.

Could they have made it any easier?

Above doll from Blossom Babies. $50 from the purchase of each doll will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.

Another noble effort...my blogging friend Cristin from Simplified Bee is donating $1.00 per comment (up to 100 comments) on her website. To leave your comment, (and to check out her amazingly fun-to-read blog)...click here!

I agree with Cristin, I wish I could do more to help as well. It's fantastic to see so many people doing what they can - very inspiring!
