Delurk for Haiti

I have been struggling with what to say about Haiti and I came up with something earlier, but that will have to wait. I have been praying for all of the people who have died or been injured or were in Haiti at the time of the earthquake. Praying for all of the rescue workers. Praying for understanding, peace, and God's love to shine through this disaster. Then I came across Brittany's post this evening (at 4 Little Men and Girly Twins) and I thought this idea was brilliant.

Here's the plan:

For every single comment I recieve on this post, our family will personally donate $0.25 to a rescue effort (most likely World Vision, but if our church starts a fund we may choose that one...I'll let you know what where we are giving after Sunday services) to help the people of Haiti. If you visit 4 Little Men and Girly Twins, you can comment there and follow other links to comment. Imagine the impact we can make!!

So, if you've never commented here - or if you do all the time - NOW is the time to comment!

This is a great idea Trista! We made a donation of our own as well, but it just never seems like enough. My heart breaks for those people and I'm glad to be a part of someone else's efforts to help as well!

Great idea! I usually read your blog through my Google reader so I don't visit or leave comments but this time I figured I should. :)
