I think that today I would just like to post the link to the Red Cross and urge all of my readers and fellow book bloggers to donate as much as they can to the victims of this horrendous earthquake. I spent 3 weeks in Haiti working at an orphanage (Cap Hatien) and I can say from first hand experience that I have never ever seen such poverty in my entire life... ever. And the resiliancy of the people there is incredible. Especially their children. But even as you read this many are dying and need our help. The government is extremely corrupt and the police have done little or nothing at this point, from what we can tell.
