Relief for Haiti

This is wonderful time, to see humanity reaching out to help the people of Haiti after the devastating earthquake that practically demolised areas in and around its capitol, Port au Prince. Many Haitians here in the United States are still awaiting news about dear loved ones. George Clooney and Wyclef hosted a televised telethon that was played on all the broadcast networks and many network cable stations with superstars performing such as, Jay-z, Bono and Rihanna, Madonna, Jennifer Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera and the lists goes on. Then to have an all-star collection of celebrities answering phones was really touching from Stevie Wonder to Reese Witherspoon. We can't begin to think Haiti is recovering, it will take some time to rebuild and our giving must continue, from building paved road where there were none, even before the earthquake, more schools to educate the children of Haiti, especially, now that many are orphaned. We saw the devastation of Katrina, the tsunami, earthquakes and hurricanes around the world, but Haiti is such a poor country that they need all the aid necessary for a brighter tomorrow. Those fortunate to live will need jobs and that means doing business in Haiti and somewhere to live, housing, nutrition, healthcare and education to stop the cycle of poverty in our time!

Yes, we can!
