Let's figure out how we can reach out to the lovely people of Haiti in the coming weeks and months as we keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
If you are already helping a local social service agency, congregation or individual aid effort please share what is happening in your community.
Those of us who can't spare money for direct donations may be working in church kitchens or at neighborhood rummage sales to raise money for those already in Haiti reaching out to individuals, families, and of course the children.
