good intentions

what you need to know about donating to Haiti:
good intentions are not enough

Don’t send shoes, send money. Don’t send baby formula, send money. Don’t send old coats, send money.

Thank you for helping raise consciousness about Haiti, every little bit helps I think.

I gave money, I wish I could do more...

You are right, and I hope alot more people all over the world are going to dig deep in their pockets to give alot more money... Haiti will need it.

Well said,well done. I feel a broken record when it comes to this...the ability for folks to text msg is helping, I hope. Meaning that many who have never given online or sent checks (also not good unless absolutely necessary), are doing so. I have had five million (OK, that's a bit of exaggeration) people ask me in person, on-line, about blankets, water, etc. Being at Haitian Embassy helping with phone boards last week was nuts...trying to get in the door around massive piles of stuff was irritating. Esp. since people had been asked to please not do this...I've been at this for other disasters & I understand the impulse. Still...so thanks for this...
