Many people want to help but don't know exactly what to send or where to go. However, everyone can help by donating just a few dollars - an easy way is to text "Haiti" to 90999 to give $10 to the Red Cross. It will be on your next phone bill
you can text "disaster" to 90999 to give $10 to Compassion's disaster relief program. They will be working directly with the local churches who know where these families live and will be providing immediate relief to them. I saw a story last night about a family in Iowa that had recently adopted a little girl named Esther from an orphanage in Haiti. Until yesterday, they had no clue if she was hurt or even alive since the earthquake. A few workers found the little girl, the caretakers, and the other children of the orphanage without a single scratch. Since the earthquake they had been sleeping outside on blankets and mattresses, they needed food and water, but they were alive. Her sweet new parents were brought to tears because they were so far away but so thankful to our great big God for keeping her safe. Compassion is a great ministry and so many children's lives have been changed because of the generosity of so many. Continue to pray for the people of Haiti!
