Help Me Help Haiti!!!

Two of my favorite bloggers ever (Ree from The Pioneer Woman and Kelly from Kelly’s Korner) had the brilliant idea to donate money for every comment left on a post. I love it. In fact, the Pioneer Woman had almost 30,000 comments!!!! If you aren’t following them online, you really should. Amazing hearts for the Lord and the kind of women who take joy in giving back from what they have received.

*Sidebar* I have never met Ree, but my dad watched the kids so I could go to her book signing. After realizing the line was going to take me several hours, I decided to leave and had Jess take a picture of me craning my neck so it kind of looks like I’m standing next to her. I actually look like a creepy stalker, but whatever. So I called my dad to tell him the scoop, and here is the conversation that followed:

Me: “Hey dad, I’m just going to head on home. The line is super long and I don’t even have my cookbook with me. Just wanted to let you know.”

Dad: “Oh, Angela. Just stay. Honey, stay. The kids are fine and I don’t mind waiting.”

Me: “It’s okay. I got to see her and it was fun to just be there. Don’t worry about it.”

Dad: “Well, okay hon. Maybe you could just say hey on your way out. She’s going to be really disappointed if she doesn’t get to meet you.”

Me: “Umm, no dad, she doesn’t even know I’m…I wanted to meet her…dad, she doesn’t, umm…”

My sweet father. It’s totally him to say that. And honestly, it doesn’t have to do with me having a blog. He’s just good at loving his kids and assuming we are the most exciting thing on the planet :). I did get a really good laugh out of it, though.

And next time, I’m braving the cattle call and waiting in line.

I’m sure Ree would want that.


Anyway, back to the important stuff…

PLEASE leave a comment. For every comment left, I will donate a quarter to Compassion International to go towards helping those in Haiti who need relief so desperately right now.

Tell your friends!!! Let’s do it together 🙂 I’ll count ’em up tomorrow evening.

Please remember all of those who have been affected by praying for them…

Much love,

Compassion International, Haiti


***Updated*** Several people have asked about their Compassion children in Haiti, and I wanted to let you know that Compassion has an excellent system of notifying sponsors once they have received information. At this point I believe their contact has been limited because of the situation but I’m sure as soon as they have details they will share them.

Dear friends,

I’m assuming you’ve heard about the earthquake that has devastated Haiti. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you of a few ways that you might be able to help.

It’s been heartbreaking to see what has happened to the children and their families.  It is an honor to be a part of the body of Christ where I know there will be hundreds of thousands willing to help.  I have seen first hand how Compassion International has changed the lives of children in desperate need.

Compassion International has put together a list of essential needs and corresponding dollar amounts.

You can access those needs by this link.

If you know of other ways to help and would like to mention them, please leave a comment with a link to that site..

And please be in prayer for these families.
