HAITI Needs Your Urgent Help

I've been wildly busy over the last two weeks so my posting has suffered considerably but I did want to touch on the truly terrible human tragedy still unfolding in Haiti as a result of the earthquake there last week. I encourage all my readers who are able to make a donation to contribute as much as you can possibly manage to your preferred relief agency. There are many GREAT charities mobilizing to help Haiti. All of them need our help. Here's a link to Charity Navigator's list of relief organizations to help you make a difference.

I donated to Doctors Without Borders, a magnificent team of doctors and nurses who have selflessly committed themselves to helping others who have nothing.

My husband donated to another wonderful organization AmeriCares based in Stamford Connecticut.

BRAVO SANDRA BULLOCK !!!!! This is one GREAT Hollywood star who has donated ONE MILLION DOLLARS to Doctors Without Borders. Click the linked image below for the story at Huffington Post.


  1. Hi Francine
    Those poor suffering people in Haiti need all of our help, whatever we can give. There are many Canadian agencies that are accepting donations here:
    I support Doctors Without Border throughout the year as I so strongly believe in what they are doing around the world. Their hospitals in Haiti were hit hard in the earthquake, but they very quickly relocated and their efforts and everyone else's continue.
    Bravo for Ms Bullock!

  2. Wonderful Francine! You are such a sweet person! And so is Sandra Bullock!
