Read and react.
As one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, Haiti’s people are especially vulnerable in the wake of such a severe natural disaster. As many as 100,000 people may have died in the recent earthquake. Sometimes I read news articles about such disasters and just think, “Aw. That’s sad.” But today, I decided to actually do something.
Your donation to the American Red Cross will help the organization provide food and medical attention to thousands of Haitians who desperately need our help. If you have $10 to spare, please make a donation! And if you are in a financial place where you cannot make a donation, consider asking your friends or parents to donate or Twittering about the event. Every little bit – even just a prayer – helps.
