Haiti - Another Way to Help
Created on 1/15/2010
When we hear news of natural disasters and its human toll we are left not only saddened, but also wondering how best to help. Such is the nature of human beings - where there is need, we act to provide relief.
But Haiti is so far away... What can one person, or a group of people, do to help those in need in a meaningful way?
Each of us will find our own unique way to contribute. Some will offer prayer, others will donate goods and services, still others will be called to serve in Haiti to keep the peace and promote stability. And many will donate money to service and relief organizations.
Harris Teeter quickly committed $25,000 to support relief efforts.
And now there's an easy way for you to further contribute to the healing of the Haitian people, and it's available at Harris Teeter checkout registers.
When you check out from the store you will be given the opportunity to purchase a $1 or $5 Haiti Earthquake Relief Card at the register, the funds going directly to the American Red Cross International Response Fund.
And it's important.
Not only to the people of Haiti, but to each and every one of us - because when we reach out and help those in need, even if we find ourselves in difficulty, we raise ourselves up and present what is best in us - compassion, love and caring.
Can $1 do that? Yes, it can, because single dollars add up to big dollars if we all work together.
And when you contribute to worthy causes, you have added reason to feel good about yourself. That helps each of us heal, and supports our being well.
Please consider purchasing Haiti Earthquake Relief Cards when next you visit your neighborhood Harris Teeter. It's good for the people of Haiti.
It's good for you, too.
