THE HAITI QUAKE AFTER SHOCK
With hundreds of relief efforts sprouting up, it can be confusing. Which one do you choose? One of my friends stated " I've i text messaged the Red Cross 10 times and plan to do again next week.... a little can help alot" Yes it does, if you know the people who need the help most will get it. I'm not trying to be a sceptic, but remember how long it took for aid to arrive during the 2005 Katrina disaster?
In my opinion, less is more. Why? because I just happen to be friends with Dany, who was born in Haiti but lives here in America. I have quietly asked her to be on the call tomorrow on Blog Talk Radio. She has agreed. She is not asking for anything. She is too humble. But i think it will be interesting to hear her thoughts about the conditions in Haiti.
We also would like to know how the Haiti Quake has affected you too. It's not a requirement to know someone in order to lend them some support. But we also know that there are people waiting at the opportunity to exploit the situation.
Please show her some love and support by calling the show which airs Sunday, January 17th,3pm. EST. (347) 237 4575. It doesn't cost anything, but TIME.
I'm exhausted, we have been busy gathering supplies to send over to Haiti. But while I was volunteering, I couldn't help but to notice that their cell phones were NOT ringing from Haiti. They are sad. If anyone would like to help me to help her and the 30 or so other Haitians over at the shop where she is a hairdresser, please message me. From the looks of things,it's going to be a long haul to recovery for the people of Haiti.
You might ask yourselves," Am I prepared for disaster?" Well, whether you are prepared or not,I have written, Survival For the 21st Century, THE OLD WAYS, , Your own do-able, step by step program. It's loaded with disaster preparedness information, sources of supply and a checklist to keep track of everything all in on place.It is not available in stores, paperback 219 pgs. $20 U.S. plus S&H.
" But tune in anyway,I might have something new to say", I told my friend.
