dear Haiti,

dear Haiti,, originally uploaded by iamchanelle.

i love you. my heart is broken for you. i pray you heal and find peace and hope again.

– here is a very simple way we can all help.  i hate to sound cliché, but for the cost of a latte and a donut, we can all contribute to the epic relief efforts in Haiti even just a little bit.  and so you know i am not just preaching at you, i have done this myself.  it is truly this simple:  after you Text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts, you will receive a confirmation text back from the Red Cross – follow their directions to confirm and you are done.  they have already raised $10 million dollars to aid Haiti – let’s raise that!

– please also take a moment to leave a comment over on The Pioneer Woman’s blog.  she is holding an incredible giveaway for the relief efforts in Haiti, and all it takes is a comment.

– i know there are many more incredible relief efforts out there – please feel free to leave links, names, anything you like in the comments to spread the information on their behalf.

i cannot even begin to imagine what this must be like for mothers, fathers, children, friends.  here are some photos of the current state of things.  as i have scrolled through each image, i have put myself in their shoes and wept.

i want to gather all those children in my arms and make their hurt go away.  this is so horrific.  there just aren’t words.  let’s all give what we can, and pray, and hope and pray some more.
