The funk is still there. But at least there is a way to help.
My first instinct is to “go”. But that is simply not a reality.
So we shall give instead.
And if the Lord calls us, in a year…or two…or three…we shall go and be the hands and feet that we can’t be in this moment now.
I know many people here are hurting financially. But you can still help. I’ve read of others planning on just eating rice and beans, and using that extra money they saved to donate. Skip going out to eat this month. Stay inside for date night…make a nice meal and rent a movie from the library…and donate what you would have spent.
We are SO blessed in this country, and I have no doubt that each of us can find a creative way to give to those who so desperately need it!
What can you do…
1. Pray. For those hurting. For those rescuing. For those mourning. For those separated by distance. For those waiting for news. Pray.
2. Give. We will be giving money directly to a Christian ministry, yet to be decided.
Let’s get those dollars flowing to those who NEED them. Desperately need them.
If you plan to blog about ways you are helping, be sure to link up at Money Saving Mom and let us know you’ve joined in the Help for Haiti campaign. I’ll be dropping links and comments all over the place today…and I encourage you to do the same.
Let’s raise some $$$$!!!!!!!
$5 feeds our family dinner. I know that $5 would feed AT LEAST 10, maybe 20, Haitians! That being said…
For each link or comment left on this post, Steve and I will donate $5, up to $500, for the relief efforts in Haiti. Simply tell us in what ways you have given, or plan to give to those in Haiti.
UPDATED! We’ve already hit the $500 goal…thank you! Please keep leaving comments and linking up, as Steve and I will discuss and plan how we can give long term to the relief efforts! Perhaps earmarking $ for a trip to help rebuild, or to give again in 6 months, as the need will still be great, long after the media coverage wanes.
Keep linking and commenting on others’ posts…the more comments…the more $$$ raised for those in need!!!
So link up and comment away…
