Haiti Relief

So, I was thinking about the people of Haiti and how I wish that there were something I could do to help out. I was going to make a donation to Samaritan's Purse and I thought I may be able to use my blog to inspire others to give. I am taking a chance and letting you all decide how much I give. Leave a comment of what charity you would give to. For each comment between now and Friday(tomorrow) at 7:00 pm eastern time I will donate $.25 to Samaritan's Purse Haiti Relief. I will also do a drawing of all the comments and donate the same amount to the winner's charity.

I would probably make a donation to either Samaritan's purse or the red cross in this case. A donation just to donate I would probably donate to a local Children's home.

I would donate to Compassion International. Great organization! So far, it looks like you will only have to give .50. I hope more people leave you comments.

Compassion International is a great charity. Also, my aunt went on a mission trip to Haiti a few years ago with the Joyce Meyer ministries and they helped out at the Love a Child orphanage down there. It was shaken, but unharmed. They are an amazing, local, 100% trustworthy organization (if you're interested). http://www.loveachild.com/

You rock, Sarah. I have always respected UNICEF as an international charity and I know they are mobilizing for Haiti relief too. All of these places sound reputable though. Best to you.

I made a donation through the Baptist Relief Program. We also may donate through Compassion. It is awesome to know that the Gospel is also being taken to the people through these organizations.
