I had a handful of other things I was going to share this week, but found I didn’t have the heart to do it after watching the repeated news of Tuesday’s earthquake in Haiti. This morning I read what Lisa Rodgers at Cactus and Ivy is doing. I highly recommend this post for inspiration, as well as for practical suggestions on how you can help.

My daughter came home from school yesterday and asked if she could send some of her money to the Red Cross. I told her we were donating as a family. If you are so inclined, The Red Cross web site makes it simple to donate. Unicef is also accepting donations. There are scams out there, so be cautious when choosing an organization to support.
