Help For Haiti–We Can All Help

My heart goes out to the people in Haiti. The tremendous pain of this horrible disaster. As I sit here in my warm home, on my comfortable couch, with a roof over my head, and all of my family safe and sound, it’s hard to even relate or comprehend to what these people are experiencing.

We all want to help but, we don’t know what to do. So here are a few suggestions.

First thing first, pray. Pray for all the families that have had their lives forever changed. Pray for them to feel comfort, hope and for them to receive might blessings and favor in their lives.

Second, give. A little can go along way. Here are a couple of organizations you can give to:

Compassion International, an organization dedicated to help children who are living in poverty. My husband and I currently have 4 children we sponsor. It’s so neat to receive letters and pictures from the children updating us on their lives! Great organization!!

Red Cross, donate on line here.


Third, blog. A little can go along way in Haiti. Money Saving Mom has started a great idea (you can read about it HERE) that I would like to be a part of. All of the bloggers out their are joining up to make donations for Haiti.

To do my part, for every reader that makes a comment on my blog, I will donate $1.00 to Compassion International, up to a maximum of $100.00. Tell me what you are doing to help the people in Haiti. Whether you are praying, or giving, or blogging, we can all do something! We are all are extremely blessed, let’s bless others!

Thank you!!

UPDATE:  I wanted to thank everyone for their comments and support! I really appreciated every single one! I also wanted to let you know that even though I didn’t even come close to 100 comments, we, being my husband and I, are going to donate $100.00 to Compassion International. Please continue to pray for the people in Haiti. And again, thank you so much!!

  1. Hey Laura,
    What a wonderful thing you are doing! We have 3 families from our church who have family members living in Haiti. We are close friends with one of the couples. His mom, brothers and sister and many friends live in Carrefour, which was near the epicenter of the earthquake. They hadn’t been able to contact anyone until today!(5 days of not knowing if your mom and family are alive, hurt, ect.) Praise the Lord, his mom and brother are safe- their house is gone, like all the rest in thier neighborhood, but are alive. (He is still waiting to hear from his other brothers and sister.) However, they did say they are in despirate need of drinking water and food! Please continue to show your support by donations, thanks Laura, and your prayers! Amy from Delaware

  3. Thank you for being willing to do this page and for being willing to give to the people of Haiti. We are keeping all individuals involved in prayer as well as having donated to ADRA.

  4. thank you. I will be sharing heartwarming stories that bring hope and a sense of togetherness and friendship for those who are lost and/or suffering; we all can be that friend, that someone who can make a difference, if only we look a little deeper, and dare to think a little greater… in loving memory of ga

  5. I’m late in posting this, but I thought I would anyway. We are dedicating a little money per month to purchase relief items. We started at the dollar store buying toothbrushes and toothpaste. Next month will probably be bottles from the dollar store, and then we will try to just go down the list and dedicate that month to one item off the list. But, I think the most important thing I did was to stop sheltering my children from the tragedies, and instead discussed with them the importance of helping our brothers and sisters who desperately needed the help. Love you girl… you made me think… and remember.
