THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for blessing our family so abundantly by being involved in our Help for Haiti project.
We had hoped maybe five bloggers would be willing to participate. When I briefly posted and Tweeted about a Haiti project I was working on, I was completely blown away when over 50 bloggers committed to post and donate based upon your comments and links. Some of these bloggers are facing layoffs, are extremely strapped financially, or have been without a steady income for months. And yet, they stepped up and committed to give as a way to help those in Haiti who have nothing.
Our posts went up Friday morning and then amazing things started to happen. You all passed the word around Facebook and Twitter, you told your friends, and, most importantly, you gave in many different ways. I know that many, many of you are in difficult financial situations. Your generosity–even when it was a great sacrifice–touched our family beyond what words can even express.
All I can say is THANK YOU. Thank you for caring, for giving, for sacrificing. Together, our efforts are going to make a major difference in the lives of many of the desperate people in Haiti.
