I was listening to NPR this morning on my drive into work and the stories coming from Haiti had me in tears – particularly those of children without parents and parents without children.
Mercy Corps is an organization that Kei and I support – as does the company I work for. The vast majority of the fund they raise goes directly to relief efforts and they have a proven history in supporting women and children – something I am passionate about.
I also sent $10 to the Red Cross this morning just by keying a few numbers into my AT&T phone. T-Mobile and other carriers are offering the same. It will show up on my phone bill next month and I doubt I will even notice the extra charge.
These are just a couple of things that we plan to do to help. You may have other organizations that have special meaning to you. A donation as small as $10 can go so far.
Something to consider on a Thursday morning…
