Helping Haiti

January 17, 2010

Love Knows No Boundaries…

Although we live a world a part from Haiti, the earthquake hit this mountain town hard. A local man was pulled from the rubble last week. Alive. He was one of the lucky few. I’ve worked with Jim on a few community events, and he is a remarkable, giving person. He was in Haiti doing relief work and fortunately, he’s safely back in Colorado.

Disasters happen, but they hit home when you know someone directly effected. In this small, small, world we have instant access to anywhere on the planet via the internet at any time. We don’t live in a bubble, but rather in hundreds of connected ways. And, we are affected by our actions always. Whether we know it or not.

I was disheartened and shocked when Rush Limbaugh made a public comment telling people not to donate to Haiti. Shame on him for his self-righteous exclusiveness. I believe God is with us all — in our hearts at all times. And our hearts cross all cultural, religious, and economic lines. Someone much wiser than I said “Love knows no boundaries.” Our hearts are full of love.

Please reach out with your heart and help Haiti.

  1. Hi Carrie –
    Once again I am reminded that we, as a nation, have no idea how fortunate we truly are. Our buildings are built stronger, we have money coming in left and right, and yet still we complain about every and any curve ball thrown our way. People SHOULD give to Haiti, to the Philllipines, to Honduras – and above all else, the ones that matter the most out there are the CHILDREN. We need to stop complaining and wise up.
