Help Haiti by donating to UMCOR

Haiti, a nation already dealing with great poverty, experienced a massive earthquake yesterday. Many different aid organizations are asking for your donations, and I just want to plug the relief agency of my denomination, UMCOR.

UMCOR already has a field office in Haiti, and all overhead costs are covered by the United Methodist Church’s operations budget (this money comes mainly from apportionments from churches–yearly donations from churches to support the operations of the denomination).

If you donate to UMCOR, 100% of your donation will go directly toward aid where it is most needed.

Click here to donate.

    I just want to second the UMCOR suggestion. My Girl Scout troop packed health kits to send to Haiti last year through UMCOR, and some of them, upon hearing of the earthquake there, asked if we could do something again, which we certainly will. There’s so much poverty in Haiti, and now so much devastation. If my 5th grade Scouts can give up some of their cookie money to give, certainly we adults can do as much or more!

    Keep Haiti in your hearts on Valentines Day! Instead of a traditional card, I’ve posted a photo of my better half on the Haiti: Wall against Hunger – at http://wall.wfp.org
