Please send whatever you can spare to those who have been impacted by this horrible devastation. These are difficult times for us all, but they are also the times that will prove what sort of people we truly are. I know your prayers will be with the people of Haiti, but your actions will be just as important as your prayers. So as you ask for assistance from above, don't forget, you have strength from above so that you can prove your faith here below..."by your works." Don't forget to act in harmony with your prayers for others in need.

Here is a list of organizations that are taking contributions to assist those affected in Haiti. Please make use of this list...

http://www.fokal-usa.org/FOKAL provides a range of educational, human development and economic activities to the local communities and community civil society organizations in the country and has become the leading independent organization shaping the future of Haiti. Fokal guarantees that 100% of your donation will go to relief efforts in Haiti.

You can text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti. The donation will be charged to your cellphone bill.

The American Red Cross is accepting donations through their International Response Fund. Donations can be sent to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013 or made by phone at 1-800-REDCROSS or 1-800-257-7575 (Spanish) or online at www.redcross.org.

A national organization of registered nurses is calling for nurse volunteers to assist residents of earthquake devastated Haiti. Through the Registered Nurse Response Network, the organization says it hopes to send nurses to provide emergency short term and long term medical support as it has in previous major disasters. The organization says details are still being worked out, but nurses can sign up at the NNU Web site, www.nationalnursesunited.org.
