Just a reminder that is you are going to donate money, make sure you do this to legitimate contributors such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army, etc. When Katrina hit, thousands of fake organizations popped up to ask for funds that were never distributed correctly.

In Facebook alone, there are some people already asking for donations that do not seem honest, just be careful with who you select.

Best of luck to all SAR/HRD dog teams and thanks to the countries sending them. (USA, France, Russia, Mexico, UK, Taiwan, etc)

God help all the people of Haiti and give strength to all the rescue workers...


Whatever your inclination, thoughts are powerful, so if you are the praying kind please continue to send them out there and you aren't please send out those positive vibes...

This thing could implode into a sea of anarchy and violence that would just compound the devastation. Very frightening...

I'm just trying to ignore them and focus on all the people that are helping. They (Rush/Robertson) are not worth my energy at this time.

Just in case anyone hasn't heard, you can text the Red Cross to donate $10 (it will automatically be added to your next cell phone bill).

For those interested in helping immediately, simply text "HAITI" to "90999" and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.

Yup. Last night, Anderson Cooper was broadcasting from a park, where hundreds of people were staying out in the open. People started shouting out "Water! Flood!" and everybody started scrambling, dropping their personal belongings, and running for safety. Then other people swooped in and stole their personal belongings.

The media is also reporting that there will likely be a lot of diseases in the aftermath of the earthquake, with so many dead bodies, thousands of people with injuries that are being untreated and getting infected, people going to the bathroom in the streets....

I just have no idea if things can stabilize, or how long it will take.

It's horrifying.

I just volunteered an hour ago, so we'll see what happens.

Wow. I missed that last night ... so scary.

Ya, this is why we need to pray like crazy.... for God to send his Angels!
Pray people!! Or just send those vibes out!

If you want any idea of what is really going on...take a look at these pictures. Not for the faint at heart.

Thanks for the link. Listening to the radio just doesn't have the impact that photos do.

I feel so awful for them. I only can hope that once things have stabilized, a real plan, effort and focus can help this country get on track.

For those of you donating, check with your employers to see if they match contributions to nonprofits as well.

thanks for all the kind words and good wishes guys.

however, i still in the dark about if and when im going. probably find out the day i have to leave, if i even do. so typical of the agency

starting to doubt ill even get the chance to go help. they'll come up with some half-ass excuse why they need me to stay here sitting around playing pocket pool for 6 hours out of 8, like it's more important

as for Rush and Robertson, fuck em.

as best i understand, the airport is now heavily congested as a result of how many aid flights have come in and others are being diverted to nearby airports to just get them in. flights also aren't allowed to land unless they can certify they have enough fuel already on board to get back out. some perspective on how much aid has already come in.
