It's been a while since I've had a Philanthropy Thursday, and I have found something that is the perfect reason to bring it back.
Have you been reading the news banners online about the Haitains who have to eat dirt on a consistent basis to fill their stomachs? Did you know these people have to buy dirt cookies? Here is a good article to start with.
What surprised me the most was the limits I encountered when trying to find organizations you could visit to help Haitians in need. I found two, and the second one showed pictures of Brad and Angelina in Haiti, wearing the aid organization's t-shirts, so I figured it was legit.
How sad is that? Brangelina is the reason I knew it was real? Is there anyone else out there who knows of outlets for us to help these people?
It is truly atrocious.
Today I am going to savor every non-dirt bite that goes into my mouth and thank God for the fact that I have so much I have to cut back what I eat. I wonder how many Haitians my kitchen could feed right now.
