Help For Haiti

It's 4:30 am. I've been watching the blow by blow report from Haiti on CNN since I arrived at work. My heart grieves for the people especially the children. Anderson Cooper and Larry King have done a wonderful job of informing the world of the total devastation which is staggering. More devastation than I have seen in my lifetime. Very little water, food and medical care. Not to mention, no bathroom, no beds only outdoor parks, streets and fields to sleep in; if they can sleep. So much fear on their faces. They reported that after shocks continues at 5.0 sometimes. I can't even imagine how horiffic it must be.

We can help! We can send money! I spoke with Matthew 25 Ministries( an International Humantarian Ministry) this morning. The spokes person said that money was the most expedient way for us to help. You can go to their website and donate at the site.

You may call them at 513 793-6256 for more information.

You can also show up at their office from 9 am until 3 pm Monday to Friday or Saturday 9 am until 12 noon if you would like to volunteer to pack and load the trucks of supplies they are sending to Haiti. You don't need to sign up prior to going. The address is 11060 Kenwood Rd. Blue Ash, Oh.

They also need canned and non-perishable food. (Add a can opener) Personal care products--Cleaning products and First aid products.

***Put your coupons to special use and buy extra products to donate. Coupons on a mission

Most importantly let us continue in prayer for the people.
