haiti earthquake 2010

I'm sure most of you around the world have heard the news of the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday and has destroyed their capital Port-au-Prince. The news reports so far have stated that 3 million people (1/3 the population) have been affected by this natural disaster, and some agencies are claiming that close to 100,000 are expected to be dead. Before this earthquake even hit this nation it was considered the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

Yesterday I took a few moments to make a cash donation to the Red Cross. I could hardly say I didn't have a small amount of money I could contribute to this horribly devastated nation. If you feel like helping out please use the following links to send money directly to help the cause.
