As you all know this morning Haiti was struck by a devastating earthquake late yesterday afternoon. The reports are still spotty but they are uniformly grim. Many, probably tens of thousands of people have been killed and more are injured and in need of emergency assistance.
The Episcopal Church, who’s largest diocese is in Haiti, has set up a special fund to channel aid to the country.
“To donate to the Haiti Fund, visit http://www.er-d.org or call 1-800-334-7626, ext. 5129. Gifts can be mailed to Episcopal Relief & Development, PO Box 7058, Merrifield, VA 22116-7058. Please put ‘Haiti Fund’ in the memo line of all checks. In addition, Episcopal Relief & Development is preparing a bulletin insert, which will be available on its website.”
Go here to find a direct link to quickly donate.
Your gift will make a huge difference. I’ve already given, and will probably give again as soon as my wife and I can talk about amounts. You should too.
