First, and most importantly, God bless the poor souls in Haiti. I won’t be redudant and repost some of the same info that is being highlighted on blogs/forums, but if you are interested in donating and haven’t done so, please visit Fleurtzy’s blog Texture Playground. She has a list of charitable organizations on a recent post. Haiti is/was her home and I know she is hurting right now. Go show her some love and support if you have time
Second, having said all that, be careful of where you give your money. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unscrupulous people who await opportunities like this to steal money from those who mean well.
Having said all THAT, I must bring to the attention of you generous ladies the recent investigation into Wyclef Jean’s organization.Much as I love that man’s music, articles such as this one are making me somewhat leery of giving money to this particular group. I encourage everyone to make educated choices in what charity you donate to so that the money can actually make it to those in need.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bad talking Wyclef. He is after all a musician and not an accountant. Things could be going on that he has no idea of. However, I don’t see that it makes a difference as long as it is done. Just please be aware.
Finally, and least importantly in the light of all that is going on, I am so very behind on my emails. I am working hard to answer them, so, once again, please be patient with Kcurly.
Take care, much love, and continue to pray for those (here and abroad) in peril and need.
