Hope for Haiti.....

I know that the earthquake in Haiti has been on all of our hearts and minds over this past week. The pictures we have seen....the death....the sadness...the tragedy has almost been too much to bear. One night last week I ran across a blog that was promoting a blog called Hope for Haiti. I immediately went there and saw that it was a blog designed to raise money for the people of Haiti. Different companies were donating prizes to be raffled off....so the only natural thing for me to do was offer up a gift certificate to my company. I emailed back and forth with Jenny and worked forever to make a store button(I know, sad right...but I finally got it) and the raffle was up.

Jenny at Simply Delightful Designs had a burden for the people of Haiti and put that burden into action....something that is rarely seen! I believe God is blessing her efforts already and that He will continue too! Be part of that blessing!

I was excited to be a part of this...to make a difference, even if it is in a small way. You can make a difference too! All you have to do is go to Hope for Haiti and scroll through the awesome giveaways that are listed and whatever prize you would like to win...you buy a chance. Every dollar you donate gives you one chance to win...so if you donate $10 you get 10 chances! The winners will be drawn at the beginning of February so don't put it off....give! ALL of the proceeds will go to Compassion International and the Red Cross

You can also donate through the Georgia Baptist Convention to help their efforts in offering relief to Haiti!

If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:17-18
