Help and Hope for Haiti

What happened in Haiti this past Tuesday is devestating. Watching the news every night is heart wrenching as I see pictures of children without their families and all the destruction that has taken place in this country.

After seeing what Ree and Alice did on their blogs, I was inspired to do something too. Because I am only 23, and have very little extra income my parents are helping me out on this one and we will be donating together! (they are amazing… I don’t know what I would do without them and all their support in everything I do) For every comment that is left on this post, we will donate 50 cents to Doctors without Borders. This charity is one of my favorites and I love what they do. (at one point in time… before I became obsessed with the kitchen… I was pre-med in college and always dreamed of working with Doctors without Borders in different countries)

So leave your warm wishes and prayers in the comments and then next Friday, my family and I will make a donation on behalf of everyone that commented and showed their support.

Haiti is going to need continuous support for a very long time. Once the news stops running these segments and the papers start to write about other happenings in the world, donations will still need to be made, so if you can’t afford to make a donation now maybe you will be able to help in the near future. Even the smallest amount could help in saving a life by getting clean water, bandages or basic food neccesities.

  1. Thanks for doing this. I donated through the American Jewish World Service and am glad that a comment here will lead to more donations for Haiti!

  2. I’m really close to your age…and get a lot of help from my parents, too, so I hear you! 😉 Got here from another blog doing a similar comment-thing. You guys are all wonderful.

  3. It’s terrifying what happened in Haiti. It is so great to have everyone pitch in and do what they can to help! Thanks for doing this, Gaby.

    I almost went to pre-med to be a doctor so I can help make a change. Doctors Without Borders is one of the charities I support on a regular basis and I’m so glad you picked them!

  4. Hi Gaby,

  5. That’s wonderful! Thank you for your idea to make a contribution and thank you to your parents! I will enjoy browsing around your blog now!

  6. Gabby, My niece Marie Cacciatore turned me on to your website. Beautiful and delicious. And now, this support for the Haitians. You are one of those people who is generous of spirit. It is in every part of you.
    You inspire.

  7. What a great idea Gaby! I’ll be forwarding this to everyone I know so as to inspire them to do a little something as well. Keep up the good work!

  8. Wow, good for you. My heart has been breaking for those struggling in Haiti. Thanks for doing what you can to help.

    I’m glad to have discovered your blog!

  9. Good work Gaby!
    It is so devastating to watch, and now another quake. Although it looks impossible to fix from where we sit, the Haitians are resilient people and they will forge ahead, and they will need lots of help. Thank you for your pledge! xox Mary & Carter

  10. I was directed here from Corey of Watching the Waters. I am amazed by what you’re doing here and had to comment! Throw 50 cents in the bucket for my comment. Let’s all keep Haiti in our thoughts and prayers.

  11. We send our love and healing thoughts to the people of Haiti and to those that, like you give from their hearts. Our local bakery is also donating all proceeds this Sunday to the Doctors without Borders.
