And now again my heart aches and the only thing I can do is send money. It feels like such a meager effort - click a button and go on about my day. There are people still trapped under rubble. Security is a huge issue and the people are expecting a lot of looting / stealing.
The Anchoress has put together a great post that lists places to donate. I picked Food for the Poor - a charity that Michael Medved also supports. Their admin costs are astronomically low - at only 0.6%!!! That is insane. Their fund raising costs are less than 2% of expenses. So you know that the money you send is going to the people in most need - obviously those in Haiti right now.
While I wish I could go down and help directly, reality is that I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a coworker. My responsibilities are here...and so I send what little I can (and am taking advantage of my current work's matching gifts program...every little bit helps!).
Please pray for those in Haiti today and in the future...and give what you can.
