Our friends at World Vision Canada have been kind enough to send me some ¬†links and information that hasn’t even gone on their website yet. I encourage you to share it with friends, spread the word, and give if you haven’t already.

I can’t think of anything more important to talk about right now then Haiti.

“Eyewitness to the devastation” – World Vision volunteers speak out about what it was like to be in Haiti when disaster struck.

“Wailing filled the air” – World Vision team members share eyewitness accounts of the devastation in the aftermath of the earthquake.

Another group we love, Hero Holiday, allowed us to share some images that one of their staff had taken in Haiti pre-earthquake. Beautiful images of a country already plagued by poverty. Take a look at our Facebook Fan Page for the album.

Emergency response teams from both World Vision Canada and Hero Holiday are now on the ground in Haiti, helping with relief efforts. If you haven’t already donated, please consider giving. It’s the best thing we can do right now to make a difference.

Also, a big thank you to the Belleville Intelligencer for covering the efforts of New Mercy Ministries in Haiti. I was so happy to have the opportunity to share this project. Check out the article: “Earthquake aftermath hits home” .
