Bloggers unite for Relief in Haiti

Sharing is caring!

This is a sticky post and will be at the top of the blog all day. To see the new posts for today, scroll down.

As I sit here at 8:30pm in my bed, watching ABC news, I can’t help but feel so helpless today. The outrageous visuals of Haiti’s aftermath makes me upset, angry and willing to do anything I can to be a blessing. Thanks to Crystal over at Money Saving Mom, bloggers out there can ban together, at least for one day, and provide relief in some way.

Starting today. January 15th and continuing until January 21st, for every blogger that links to my blog using the Mr. Linky below, I will donate 1.00 to UNICEF, a charity that I hold dear to my heart because of the constant work they do for children in need around the world.

What should you link? Well, put up a post on your blog sending love, prayers or well-wishes to those in Haiti right now. Or, share with your readers how this whole ordeal is effecting you and your family, and how it’s changing your view on life. OR, just encourage others to provide relief in their own way. Provide a link to my blog in your post, and then come back and leave the link to that post on my Mr. Linky. Easy!

If you don’t have a blog, no worries. You can leave a comment in my comments section, and for every comment, I will donate .10 to Food for the Hungry, another charity that I hold dear.

The best part about being frugal and realizing the importance of saving is that when an opportunity to be a blessing comes up, you can jump to help. So, let’s see how much of my “rainy day funds” you all can send off to Haiti!

    Hey dhunny! What a great way for bloggers to unite. I don’t have a blog, but I will participate however I can. I made our donation last night through Samaritan’s Purse, they have been in Haiti since Wednesday helping set up water purification stations, medical stations, and food stations. I hope y’all get a good response to your Haiti outreach.

    We donated to the US fund for UNICEF and also to a local (Kentucky)-based charity called Ten Kids whose goal is to provide a safe home, education, etc. to Ten Kids I like the idea of giving to an organization meeting general needs of the people of Haiti and to one meeting the needs of specific children. We are so blessed–I can’t imagine the losses of the Haitian people.

    Thanks for all you’re doing!!

    Our family is planning to give. Our church ususally takes up an offering for disasters like this, so we plan to give through our church. They give the money to a missionary or organization they trust to help distribute the money. If our church doesn’t take up an offering, we plan to donate the money through Compassion Int. Thank you for your generous heart.

    I’ve been praying ever since I learned what happened in Haiti, but wasn’t sure how to contribute.

    Now I’m ready to move on an idea had a while back. I’ve been saving all our family’s nut cans for ages. Now I have a huge box of them. I’m going to print up some labels for them saying ” We CAN Help Haiti and CHANGE the outcome!” Then my children and I will give them out to everyone we know,( keeping a list for weekly pick up).

    In this economy, lots of people don’t feel they can afford to help much financially, but nearly all of us have coins that weigh down our purses and pockets, that could be doing some good for people in much more difficult circumstances than we are in, here in the U.S.

    There’s never been a better moment to Love Thy Neighbor!

    Well, here’s a quote that’s dear to my heart: “Where there is great love, there is always miracles.” -Willa Cather

    And there was a miracle in Haiti today! CNN’s Anderson Cooper reported that a 5-year old boy–underneath rubble in a house where others died–was found alive. He’s severely dehydrated, but has no broken bones and is expected to live. The little guy had been found by his uncle, and had been lost since the earthquake eight days before.

    So happy news from what must be the saddest place on earth. I love this story!
