I’ve been so glad to hear about the millions of dollars that people have been giving – much of it in the form of $10 text donations -- to help with the relief effort in Haiti. It’s nice when technology makes it convenient to do the right thing.
Today Will and I took some time to look at some online images from Haiti. We talked about what earthquakes are (and the fact that we are not in a place where earthquakes are likely to happen), looked at before and after images of the presidential palace before and after the earthquake and viewed an American Red Cross photoessay of the Haiti earthquake. We found Haiti on our globe and noticed how relatively close it is to Georgia. I asked Will if he would like to help the people in Haiti and I let him punch in the numbers to text our donation to the Red Cross relief effort.
Hope you’ll join us in chipping in, if you haven’t yet already. You can donate $10 to Haiti relief by texting “Haiti” to 90999.
