Haiti on my mind

January 16th, 2010

I’m stepping out of my blog vacuum for just a moment here. If you’re like me, you’ve been overwhelmed with news and images of the earthquake that happened in Haiti earlier this week. On the off-chance that you have been meaning to donate to help out but just weren’t sure how or where to do it, below are a few links you can follow to make a contribution.
