In the wake of the Earthquake tragedy in Haiti, there just had to be some blowhard that couldn’t help but add salt to the wounds and throw in his asinine two cents. The blowhard in question is of course Pat Robertson who hypothesized that the Haitians brought this devastation upon themselves because long ago they signed a “pact with the Devil”.
Now, I’ve pretty much said all I have to say about preachers, their ilk and their manipulations in a previous post, so I will rant no further on this topic. The point of this entry is that I feel for Haiti’s plight. The fact of the matter is that this country is constantly hit with some form of devastation or other. Being one of the poorest countries in the world (the poorest in the Western Hemisphere), they really didn’t need an earthquake to add to their woes. Because of this, I’d like to offer some links to some charitable organizations that are currently helping out Haiti. If you do have extra money that you can part with and you would like to use it for some good, the following would appreciate your donation:
There are also some text messaging options if that is more convenient for you:
- Texting “YELE” to 501501 to donate $5.00
- Texting “Haiti” to 90999to donate $10.00
