If you can help, Please do

I have talked about Haiti here and here and my own experience in Haiti here.

As you probably know Haiti has been decimated by an earthquake yesterday. I have many personal connections to Haiti, and the people I love have many more. Children with parents and siblings still there, parents with children there, friends with family there.

There is NO viable government in Haiti, there are no social services, there is no help. There is nothing except a country that will be left on its own to try to survive.

Do you understand how many children will die because of this earthquake? Not just because of yesterday but because of all the tomorrows to come? It's too impossible to even fathom.

If you can help by sending a financial donation, please do.

HATS is an orphanage and school run by a friend and they do alot of good in the community they work in outside of Port-Au-Prince. They are accepting donations.

The Haiti Rescue Centre can also use donations.

Or find the organization of your choice. Just, please, do something.
