Please Donate

We are all aware of the horrible destruction and devastation that has happened this week in Haiti. We have spent the week hearing about sad stories and triumphs. Amidst the positive stories there have been horrible tragedies. At church this morning we learned that all 110 Brothers in the same order as the Brother at our church who were serving in Haiti died in the destruction. We also learned that the archbishop of Haiti died.

There are many good organizations to donate through, however, Catholic Relief Services is who I have chosen to make a donation through. CRS is well known in the global community for being effective, efficient and accountable. The money donated goes right where it is needed. CRS is known for going where other organizations don't or won't. If you would like to donate through CRS you can click the banner above or click here.

To read about CRS and their accountability, effectiveness, and efficiency, please read here.

If you choose not to donate through CRS, please be careful where you choose to do so. Although it is sad, tragedy also brings out the scammers. It has been stressed not to donate through a phone call or a service that you do not know. American Red Cross is another reputable organization for disaster relief.

Whatever you choose to do, please take the time to be thankful for what we have and how lucky we are.
