Arrow Haiti

This has been weighing heavy on my heart. Reading MSNBC and other news reports. Seeing the pictures. I am from the Caribbean though not from Haiti. There are friends and acquaintances who have relatives in Haiti. This past week has been more than a little difficult for them. Trying to contact family. Trying to find ways down there. I also find myself reflecting on the history of Haiti. It's place in the history of civil rights for people of African descent and civil rights for all people. It's hard not to feel a little depressed.

For those who are interested in contributing to relief being sent to Haiti, I would recommend Oxfam-America. The Unitarian Universalist Service Committee list it as a resource. Both are sending earthquake relief to Haiti.

CharityWatch gave Oxfam-America an A- rating and the organization is among their Top-Rated.

The links below from the Better Business Bureau and Charity Navigator give more in depth information on the UUSC's charity work.

Other suggestions on ways to aid Haiti posted here would be great.
