For the people of Haiti.
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere. This is surprising considering the natural beauty of the island of Hispaniola it shares with the Dominican Republic. A series of dictators and 2 centuries of bad government brought this nation to this state of poverty.
Add to that the fact that the island of Hispaniola is directly in the path of Hurricanes entering the Caribbean Sea, yesterday's 7.0 Earthquake was rubbing salt into the wounds.
If you want to help you can donate via the American Red Cross here. You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti.

And keep them in your prayers, the authorities believe that the death toll will climb into the tens of thousands.
