I'm sure pretty much everyone has heard about the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on Tuesday. There are many legitimate organizations that are already on the ground there that could use our financial support including World Vision, Doctor's Without Borders, and the American Red Cross.
CNN has a full list of organizations providing aid to those in need. With all the daily news coverage of stories of pain and suffering (this one and others), it's easy become numb and consumed with our own lives. Wouldn't it be awesome if we all made 2010 a year of giving back and consciously looking for ways to help those in need?
My family gave $50 to Project Hope and $10 to the American Red Cross. Crystal at Money Saving Mom, as well as many other bloggers will be donating specific amounts of money for every person who blogs about what they did to help those in Haiti. So link up to as many as you can!
