What Can I do For the People Of Haiti?

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS YOU CAN DO?
My boys go to a school that are doing fundraisers and a portion is being donated to the Red Cross. Every dollar has an impact — we just need to make sure that it gets to the people.

Here are some ideas of what you can do:

* dance-a-thon: raise money by dancing
* movie-a-thon: raise money by watching movies
* bake sale
* book sale
* send lots of love energy to these people who need it
* be kind to you neighbour – appreciate what you have
* be grateful that you live in such an incredible country

Below are a list of agencies that you can give to:
I have gathered the names of different organizations/groups provided in the Canadian paper that you can trust your donations with.
