Haiti Needs You

Card by Mike Funke at Stampin' Style

Today's post is in honor and memory of the people of Haiti.

One of the poorest countries in the world, Haiti has needed our help in the past and needs it even more now. Entire hospitals, schools, churches, apartment buildings, businesses, and homes collapsed after yesterdays 7.0 earthquake. There is not much stability in Haiti either structurally or governmentally. This country needs so much. It may seem a hopeless cause but, we have to try. Haiti has dark times; I cannot even imagine the darkness that has hit them with this disaster.

There are many humanitarian organizations trying to help Haiti. I hope you will prayerfully consider making a donation to one of them. Sumaritan's purse is one such group that sent its first disaster team in yesterday evening. Their website is http://www.samaritanspurse.org/ and they have a button to donate on-line. There are also groups showing up to take advantage of this disaster by asking for your donation. My caution is to make sure you know the organization you are giving to.

Pray for the people of Haiti, the many missionaries that live in Haiti, and all the people that have gone there to help.

God Bless,

Thank you Martha for writing about Samaritan's purse and the people of Haiti. I am working on an event--"Stampin' Hands for Haiti," and we are hoping for LOTS of people to buy cards and lots of cardmakers! Friends from our church have been there many times doing work with an orphange and camp for aids sufferers. Have have not heard yet from the pastor they work with when they are there nor the status of the little boy they send support to. Thank you so much for sharing this news on your blog. Stamp On! lorijane
