Haiti Rescue


According to “WikiAnswers”, approximately 216,000 babies are born each day in the world. Approximately 250,000 – 300,000 people die. On one average day, a magnitude 7.0 quake (the most powerful to hit Haiti in a century) struck shortly before 5 p.m. and has potentially claimed as many as 50,000 people and left an estimated 3 million others homeless and injured.

Please give blood. National Public Radio (NPR) reports that the Red Cross is out of supplies. For those of us without deep pockets to aid these efforts financially, a donation would mean a great deal. I have scheduled my appointment and I hope you will do the same: 888.825.6638.
