Haiti

Just spent part of the morning - between playing cars with my son and the various and sundry parts that come with being a mama and general COO of the house - attempting to catch up with the world, and read some detailed pieces on Haiti. Mercy. That poor, and i'm not being Southern now, country has faced more devastation in the past 15 years between hurricanes, flooding, violent storms, and now this - a crippling earthquake - than they are equipped to handle given their rampant, unchecked poverty.

I'm crunching numbers to squeeze our budget to figure out our number to send aid, and really encourage y'all to do so too. These are hurting, hungry, poor people who need help. Here are some great organizations:

UNICEF
American Red Cross
