Comment for a Cause

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Today I will be giving $1 for every comment I get on this post through midnight tonight to the Haiti-Earthquake Recovery fund set up by Bethany Christian Services to help the orphaned children in Haiti. "We will work with our partners on the ground in Haiti to utilize these donations to help make sure children in Haiti are safe." ~BCS website

(Hopefully hubby is ok with this! I've been waiting for the past few hours to hear back from him and as I was waiting another news report came on tv. It just broke my heart so much that I didn't want to wait any longer...he loves me and I know he can't say 'no' to me ever! :)

So, I'll be turning off the comment moderation in hopes that I'll get so many comments I won't be able to keep up with publishing them myself!

Please be praying for the country of Haiti.

If you feel led and are able to you can give directly through this link or any of the other Haiti relief funds. Or, if you would like to match our donation that would be so great! Let me know!
Thanks for the idea Emily! She's doing the same thing so go comment on her blog as well!
