Haiti Earthquake

So sad to hear about the massive earthquake that hit Haiti Tuesday.  It was a 7.0 which is very devastating.  My heart goes all to all of those who are there struggling to find food, water, and shelter.  We are so blessed here in the United States to have so much more than our basic needs of food, water, and shelter.  Haiti is a nation that was already at an 80% poverty rate.  I can't imagine how people are coping.  So before we complain that starbucks didn't put the right amount of cream in our coffee, or our food was cold, maybe we should remember those who aren't lucky enough to eat. 
In the midst of disasters there are those who are quick to rip us off trying to get donations so they can steal them.  Everyone be careful where and how you donate and make sure they are from a credible source.

If you would like to donate through the American Red Cross, you can text "haiti" to 90999 and $10 will show up on your next cell phone bill.
Please pray for those in Haiti, and remember we are blessed!  Have a great day!
