While we’re busy counting our blessings there are people who value their lives and families just as much as we do, who are in a whole lot of trouble.  I’m referring to the earthquake situation in Haiti. Some of us who are reading this are at a computer, with a roof over–not on–our heads.  If there is something you can do to help them, Samaritan’s Purse (the originator of the Shoebox idea at Christmas) is a reliable venue to distribute help in crisis situations.    And it truly is more blessed to give than to receive.

Here’s a copy of  an e-mail received from Samaritan’s Purse:

Samaritan’s Purse is rushing to assist in Haiti after a 7.0-magnitude earthquake rocked the desperately poor Caribbean nation late Tuesday afternoon.

An initial shipment of emergency relief items – including rolls of plastic shelter material, hygiene kits, and water purification kits –
are being flown into Port au Prince on Wednesday, along with the Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Assistance Relief Team.

“We’re asking Canadians to join us in our emergency humanitarian effort,” said John Clayton, Samaritan’s Purse Canada’s director of projects. “Haiti is already one of the world’s poorest countries, so the need for outside assistance is enormous.”

The situation in Haiti is dire. Please join Samaritan’s Purse in bringing relief and hope to the people of Haiti through your donations
and prayers.
