Haiti Earthquake

One of the worst earthquake’s in 200 years struck Haiti yesterday afternoon at a 7.0 magnitude which was then later followed by twelve aftershocks greater than a 5.0 magnitude. The current death count is upwards of 100,000 with approximately 3, 000, 000 people effected without adequate food, clean water or shelter. As expected, The Big Picture is one of the first websites to post a collection of photos which you can visit HERE (this link is not for the faint of heart). If you’d like to contribute in anyway, Salvation Army has activated its Text to Donate program in support of this disaster. Canadians can make $5 donation by texting the word “HAITI” to 45678 and will receive a message asking them to confirm their donation with a “YES” reply. This honestly makes me realized how blessed we are to be living in such a prosperous country… There’s no floods, earthquakes, typhoons, hurricanes, violence (well nothing we have to really about) , etc. Its funny, a lot of us want to leave the country while on the other hand, plenty want to enter.
