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. When I turned on the radio yesterday, the first sentence I heard was “Tens of thousands are feared dead.” By noon I was hearing numbers of 40 and 50 thousand. By the end of the the day, estimates of 140 thousand. As stressful as my life is right now, I have huge gratitude for my family, the roof over my head, and the rest of a long list. Life in Haiti on a good day is hard. Poverty is a life-degrading force, and it touches everyone in Haiti. Even though I am not much of a pray-er, I offer prayers to those affected by the earthquake, and hope it reaches them. Thanks to you and your parents for doing this, as I can not afford to give much on my own right now.

  2. It’s a great thing you and your family are doing; similar challenge going on my blog. Thank you, and God bless you as well as those poor folks in Haiti.

  3. LOVE IT, Gaby! I’d love to help too. I’ll match 10 cents for every comment (including mine of course) for the next 30 days! I wish I could do more but I’m not working much right now. Let’s work on getting the word out!

  4. This is great Gaby and thank you also to your parents! I am going to have my kids, Nick and Emily, post a note as well for I think it is very important that they realize that there are less fortunate people in this world and that anything we can do to help really matters!

  5. Gaby this is such a wonderful thing you and your family are doing. The good karma will be returned to you and everyone who has donated to help with the earthquake relief. Thank you.

  6. Nice work, Gaby. Every little bit does help. Our hearts go out to the citizens and people of Haiti and those who were affected by the earthquake.

  7. Thanks to you and your awesome parents!! It is just amazing to see so much generosity! It is my prayer that Haiti will come out of this stronger and better!!
