Hello there everyone,

Here are easy ways you can help people devastated by the earthquake in Haiti.

Click here to donate: http://www.care2.com/click-to-donate/haiti/

Each click will help fund donations to Oxfam America. Oxfam America will use the funds to provide urgently needed water and sanitation to Haiti's survivors.

Help Haiti. Ask global creditors to drop Haiti's 1 billion dollar debt. Do it now by signing this petition here:

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/196437118

By doing this, you are making sure that more money is being used where it's needed the most - to rebuild the lives and futures of people in Haiti. Paying back old debts would only delay and reduce the chances of aid, food, medical aid, shelter reaching people. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world. I can't imagine how long it'd take for Haiti to rebuild itself if its debts weren't dropped.

Thank you so much.

I got this information from heartsandhands1's post about Hearts and Hands International's blog-a-thon at the livejournal community "advocates":

Hearts and Hands International is a non-profit charity which helps out at-risk children around the world. Its volunteers provide food, housing, medicine, clothing and adoption to orphaned children around the world.

Here is the URL of the Hearts and Hands website:

If you have the time to help out, Hearts and Heads would really appreciate it if you could post a short blog with a link back in order to help spread the word. Please blog about it too, if you can.
