ways to help

just like all of you, i'm stunned and heartbroken over the scenes, stories and tragedies coming out of Haiti this week. i've been feeling helpless and wishing there was something, anything more tangible i could do. i wish R & I were of retirement age so we could just up and board a plane to help out in person for as long as needed.

but there are other ways to help, and what i found here inspired me to pass on the info
  • find reputable charities to donate to here or here
  • become informed on how to avoid scams here
  • more ideas on how to help here
  • donate airline & hotel miles to the American Red Cross to aid doctors and other relief workers in traveling to Haiti. (read about it here)
  • pray
