I have several friends who have expressed a desire to help the people of Haiti, but aren't sure how to do that. One friend of mine, Robin, would love to go over and help out, but that isn't possible right now. I think that we can all keep the people of Haiti in our thoughts and prayers, but we can also help them to rebuild by making donations to reputable agencies like the Red Cross. The official site is www.redcross.org
You can also donate through the LDS church. The website for the church is lds.org and you can find a link there to make a donation. Service or donations of any kind not only helps those we are giving to, but it helps us to become better people.
I hope we all take the time to be thankful for the blessings that we have in our lives. Not only the conveniences and luxuries that we enjoy, but also the loved ones that we have around us.
