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.

    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!

    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
