On Friday, I had the good fortune to attend an event in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. There was beautiful singing, reminders of important events in the Civil Rights Movement and a keynote speaker that talked about service to community. The speaker talked about the importance of giving back and helping those in need, just as Dr. King gave of himself in the fight for civil rights for African-Americans. I can think of no greater way to honor Martin Luther King Jr., than to consider what kind of service we can extend to our neighbors in Haiti, who are reeling from the devastating earthquake of barely a week ago.
In place of any kind of fashion rundown, I thought I’d supply a list of organizations seeking donations for immediate support to Haiti. If you can give, it would be an amazing gift to the people of Haiti.
