Help for Haiti

Though the aftermath from the earthquake in Haiti is still unfolding and the number of deceased continues to rise, there are some glimpses of hope as the world opens up its hands and hearts to help the Haitian people.  Disasters often-times have a way of bringing people together in ways that might not have been tried or thought of before. 

One of the ways this is being seen is perhaps also the easiest way we can help the people of Haiti - by using our cell phones.  Carriers nationwide have set up a way to donate to the cause by having customers text the word "Haiti" to 90999.  By doing this, your cellular provider will add a $10 charge to your next month's cellular bill and give the donation to Haiti relief.  So far over $10 million has been raised in this way. Because there possibly would have been a delay in the actual money getting to the people of Haiti who desperately need it, many companies are sending the donations up front.

If you are looking for another way to help the people of Haiti, please visit Healing Hands International.  By clicking this link you can be updated on what this particular organization is doing to help and it will also explain to you how you can donate to the cause.  You can click here to see a special report about this organization by Fox News 17 in Nashville.

Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers.  They have a long road ahead of them.  Also pray for those all over the world who may have friends and family in Haiti.  God loves the people of Haiti, just as He loves people all over the entire world.  Christians are the church and servants of Jesus.  Jesus went about doing good, and to serve Him, so must we.  The Haitian people need us!

He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.
Proverbs 19:17
