Everything I’ve thought about posting the last two days seems so insignificant when I think about the immense suffering in Haiti. I’m going to have to stop watching the news, because I find it devastating. And me feeling devastated doesn’t help anyone. Does anyone else feel a little guilty at times like these? How did I get so lucky to have this warm, comfortable home in a country with a stable infrastructure?
If you’re donating, and I hope you are, there are lots of options. I love the LDS Philanthropies because (someone correct me if I’m wrong) my understanding is that the Church pays the administrative costs, so the donations go 100% to relief efforts. You can help a tiny bit more by heading over to Pioneer Woman today. She is making a donation, plus an additional 10 cents for every comment. Every little bit helps, right?
Do you wish you could head over there right now with a pallet of drinking water and a shovel? What else can we do?
