~ Giving to Haiti ~

Well I have certainly had the Haiti disaster on my mind all week and tugging at my heart. When Katrina struck, I made a donation right away, and then some shocking truths were relieved about how the money was spent and how much really made it to the victims. I was very saddened by this, not for my little contributions but for all the huge amounts of much needed money and for the victims. This time I wanted to be a little smarter. Take a little time and see what pans out as some of the best and safest ways to donate.

We know and we saw the US Military being some of the first to arrive. After researching and checking things out, I feel confident that One hundred percent of the donations made to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund go directly to relief efforts.

Here is the website:

I challenge all my fragrance friends who have it on their hearts to do something, to donate the cost of your next bottle of fragrance to this fund. We all can do more than $10 bucks, let's anti up people.

Are you feeling helpless, uneasy, unsettled? You can make a difference and feel better. How?

  • Donate!!
  • Spread the word, of how and where to donate.
  • Challenge friends, family, groups to match or better your contributions.
  • And most of all Pray. Pray that any survivors still trapped will be found, pray for healing, pray for swift action to meet needs, pray for emotional healing. Pray for generosity and compassion and the outpouring of help from around the world. Pray for Haiti.
