Millions not Billions.

We are talking basic human needs here. While I feel bad for kids in Florida without coats most of them have shelter and water and are not on the verge of dying.

While I can certainly understand an "America First" attitude......this goes beyond politics and money and becomes an issue of humanity.

Don't worry about sending money guys. All my facebook friends are praying for them. God's got this.



On a serious note here is a link to a few ways you can help.

I never had a winter coat when I lived in Charleston, and I was well off...not having potable water is on another level.

U find a kid having to wear a blanket to school every once and a while more sad than what's happened in Haiti? With all the death and destruction?

Am I misunderstanding you?

So nobody could give the kid a lift in a heated car or bus, so he could spend a grand total of 30 seconds outside in the "freezing cold".....my Chicago living ass laughs out loud.

Seriously dude.

The people of Port-au-Prince are in a Dante-esque hell, not mildly uncomfortable until the jet stream bubbles back up.
