My Heart is Breaking for Haiti

I know there have been alot of disasters and there are so many people in need all over the world and in our own backyard! Right now it seems that the people of Haiti just can't get a break! I watch their faces on tv and on the news and they look so lost, just so very sad and not knowing what to expect next, is it going to be another earthquake, riots from hunger, fires? Where are their neighbors? What about their own family??? Can you just imagine? I know that there have been some here that have felt like that because of one situation or another either from say a run-away child, to an ill-fated pregnancy to 911, Katrina, the Oklahoma bombing (in my own backyard!), a house-fire so many many crisis' what if you were asked to donate a kidney, etc....the decision making process....just the very alone feeling the feeling of no one to turn to and not knowing which way to turn, who to trust, where to go??? Ok, I'm just thinking out loud.

Anyway, I am going to donate 5% of any of my profits to the Red Cross, it won't be much trust me! If it reaches $20 it will be some!! LOL....but it will be some! My grandson's school is also having a *Pennies* war to donate to the Red Cross so we are collecting *Pennies* it can be anything but the kids LOVE the pennies idea! NO!!!...I am not asking for wanted to share what our school is doing! Oh, I will be doing this until Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010!!

I am also going to donate .15 cents for every comment....hopefully this will add up and won't make people feel they have to purchase anything to help out...again it's not much but hopefully it will add up!!!

For those of you who don't know I have custody of 2 grandchildren they are 9 and 14..They have felt a bit sorry for themselves at times because of their situation that none of us asked for or expected...this is helping them realize how fortunate they are....I am praying that this will help my kids in a round-a-bout way with their situation. I was so very happy when some of the orphans were able to come! Knowing that my children will someday may be put up for adoption really hit home to me to know that these children will have a home. They have been with us for almost 3 years. I cannot go into details but we love them very much!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not think I am doing this to increase my profits/orders but it is only ONE way *I* know to help this precious people out! If I don't get any orders trust me I will help out in other ways. I will not stand back and not help, darn I wish I could go there and help...LOL...they would end up KICKING ME OUT!!!!

Thank you for listening to me think aloud. Thank you for any prayers you can send these people. Even if you don't order please help out in any way you can prayers are so powerful and they are worth as much as any monentary amount could ever be!!! Etsy has a store set up also, I will get the information on here later on....

May your day be peaceful!

I do want to also let you know that Stampin' Up! has decided to do this:
From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you sell will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relif and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.
