I read this blog from Tamar Hahn, a UNICEF volunteer and it brought me to tears. (Click here to view From UNICEF's Tamar Hahn in Haiti) My family will do our part in helping out, and I'll recall a lesson from Mother Theresa, "It's not really giving until it hurts", an important tenet that I want my 8 year-old to learn and live by.
This country needs us. These children need us. Let's give, pray, and give together. The emptiness in the childrens' faces below tells the story of this historical devastation.
I'm choosing to donate through the U.S. Unicef Haiti Emergency Fund, as 100% of all donations will go to the Haitian people in the form of food, water, supplies, and more. To donate $10, simply text to #20222 and write UNICEF. It's that easy. Not a texter? Just call 1-800-4UNICEF or 1-800-HELPNOW, or donate on-line at http://www.unicefusa.org/. It's not too late.
