Help!

Brushed my teeth while the water ran,
splashed half a glass down the drain.
These luxuries we take for granted,
while Haitians stand in line for drinking water.

Helping in Haiti

If you want to help the victims in Haiti check out web sites for Medical Teams International, Mercy Corps, World Vision, World Concern, American Red Cross, World Food Program, CARE or check you local newspaper for listings. Since you are all very computer literate, I didn't create links to the organizations mentioned here. You are on your own. Help if you can.

Well said.

Everything I do during the day reminds me of someone on that island that is wishing they could do it and wondering if they will ever be able to do it again.

Beth said...

Like minds! I wrote about Haiti, too. My 160 is up.

I LOVE your 160 this week. :) And we are giving.

Felicitas said...

MM - You are so right. Many of us do take ALOT for granted. And sometimes it takes a situation like the one in Haiti to make us look at things a little differently. A wonderful 160.

P.S. So sorry for breaking the rules... I had a twitchy finger! Please see Brian's "One Last Post" for further explanation.

May heaven help them. And may we who are 'here' help them too in any way we can.

I try not to take anyone or anything for granted. It's very sad what they are going through in Haiti. I wish I could help them more but I'm finally helping my family for the first time in a long time.

Great 160.

listen for azure said...

You just donated 100 bottles of water purification and enough antibiotics to save 1000 people in Haiti.

You also just fed 30 homeless families with children in Portland, since we need to take care of those closer to home, too, and can't forget them.

We may not have much, but if we're here and together, there's always more we can do for others.

I is our actions, not our thoughts that can make a difference. Thank you Azure (Mrs. MM) for taking action.

Reminding us all to help in whatever way we are able is showing by example, and I thank you.

Everything we do we take for granted.

We will all send what we can. Look at Poet in Residence's idea!

For a subject that is in all our minds, it makes the point very tellingly.

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

Truly is a sad moment in our time to see and have such loss. I, like many, sit in wonderment of why this happened. This morning I watched as they pulled out a woman that has been trapped for 6 days. He husband was the first to hear her calling out for help. Her words of love were nearly the first things out of her mouth. Beauty even in darkness. I am amazed!

Soft love,
