Linky Love: Samaritan's Purse

Seeing the devastation on the news from Haiti has been so hard to watch.     It brings back to mind the images of Hurricane Katrina, but I realize that what is happening in Haiti is so much worse.   

Our Country is a very, very generous Country.      We have $3 billion dollars in foreign aid to Haiti in the past three years.      I am sure that we will send whatever it takes to help during this catastrophe as well.    The problem with sending money through the government is that it goes through government channels which means so much of the money never makes it to the people who truly need it.    

That is why my Linky Love this week is for Samaritan's Purse.    They were one of the first relief teams to arrive in Haiti with supplies and, even as seasoned relief workers, they were shocked at what they faced.

Below is the plea from Franklin Graham and how you can help the people of Haiti.

Ditto on the thanks for this info. I always want to help in tragedies like this but don't want my money going to administrative costs or being filtered through government channels. You rock as always!
