SOS 4 Haiti

Who can say it better than "Things That Inspire" so from her blog to you:

"Things That Inspire

Taking Action
Posted: 15 Jan 2010 05:36 AM PST
When a disaster such as the earthquake in Haiti occurs, it is of critical importance that those who can help take action.
Please consider making a donation to help the organizations that have mobilized to provide assistance to Haiti. Even a $10 donation would be incredibly helpful! As so many of the donations pouring in are made through credit card, American Express and Visa just announced that they will waive the fees on donations.

American Express will waive the fees through the end of February to these charitable funds established specifically to respond to the devastation in Haiti:
Visa will also waive all fees related to donations to Haiti relief organizations.

This means that 100% of your contribution will go to the charitable funds.

InterAction is the largest coalition of US based international nongovernmental organizations that are focused on the world's poorest and most vulnerable people, and includes the American Red Cross, Oxfam, Unicef, the United Way, and Habitat for Humanity (as well as dozens of additional organizations)."

$10.00 donation from each reader will go a long way for Haiti.

A la prochaine,

I wish I had added that last line - it sounds great!

Thank you for the shout out. It just seemed wrong for me to post on decor today given that hundreds of thousands have completely lost their homes.

Thank you for your comment. I wasn't even in the mood to post because of Haiti. When I read your post, it was exactly how I felt. Also, you said it first, and it was so appropriate to let others know what you had to say.
