I don’t have any money, not really, but you know what? The cable bill can wait. We have enough to eat, and our home has not crumbled around us. Very poor people are in crisis, and Haiti is literally falling apart. Even if you can only spare a few dollars, please do.
If you’re here in Canada, donate online to the Canadian Red Cross. Until February 12, the Canadian government will match any donation you make to a registered charitable organization.
If in America, there are several ways to donate to the Red Cross.
And if there is any way that you can help save the children at BRESMA, or if you know of anyone who can help, there is a lot to do there and not very much time.

So I’ve kept it together, not crying, until today and then I read this and then the BRESMA link just made me cry. At work.
Thanks Emily — you are wonderful to put this out there. Also, if your church or other local organizations are planning something, it’s simple to get involved in canned food drives/clothing drives/etc.
It sounds like the BRESMA kids are getting the help they need – great news! But there’s still so much to be done. Keep sending cash, and like Linda said, get involved with drives for food and clothing, if you have the opportunity.
