“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

The news is heartbreaking.

I know this.  I know what this is like.  I know what it is to lose your home, to lose everything.  I know what it is to frantically try to reach friends and loved ones, to wonder if they are still okay, if they have been spared.

I have seen my entire community dismantled at the capricious hand of nature.

I also know the kindness of strangers and the open door in the night.  I have survived on it.  I was lucky enough to still be living in one of the most affluent countries on earth.

Please, help.   In whatever way you can, however small.

Believe me, it makes a difference.

I know this.

    I just got an alert today. There are already scumbags trying to prey on good-hearted people. At 10 AM, the top five links on Google if you searched for “Haiti Relief” were actually to scam web sites.

    By all means, help, but stick with charities you know, and donation channels you can trust.
