While I’m under a media-rock much of the time (no TV or papers, thank you very much) I do get wind of the major stories, albeit a bit late. Should have posted this yesterday, but here’s a good list of 6 ways to help Haiti, and there are lots more options in the comments section there.
Partners in Health (PIH) — an organization doing wonderful health care work in Haiti — has been given a matching grant by an organization called Angelwish. Angelwish will double your contibution to Partners in Health for the Haiti relief effort if you contribute through the Angelwish website. http://www.angelwish.org/?gclid=CNrStbvJpJ8CFRtN5QodAnaPJw

It’s hard to see/hear of such horrible devastation, and have no direct avenues to help. Prayer and donations are the only viable responses for most of us, followed by a huge wave of thankfulness for what we do have, and the ease with which we have it. Any specific prayer requests, or other ways to help?
