Helping Haiti

17 01 2010

I’ve been so encouraged to see, hear and read about all my friends who are finding ways to help out those in Haiti affected by the recent earthquake. It’s amazing to think of how our “little” contributions may feel like nothing, but together all these “little” contributions can and will make a difference.

I know it can feel overwhelming to think about the various organizations or causes that are working in Haiti, and not knowing what to do or who to give to. But I wanted to share a few things that some of my friends are personally involved with or have shared with me.

[1] Help End Local Poverty (HELP) is selling t-shirts, benefiting Real Hope For Haiti. Taken from the HELP website:

We are partnering with clinic and rescue center called Real Hope For Haiti ( by selling T-shirts to raise funds for their relief efforts in Haiti. 100% of all proceeds will go directly to Real Hope for Haiti, so they can care for the kids of Haiti.
