Bloggers for Haiti

It's almost impossible to comprehend the horror that is taking place in Haiti. This morning I have been listening to some radio reports about a school outside of Port-au-Prince where they were still trying to pull children out of the rubble, five days after the earthquake. There were no more survivors. Can you imagine if this were going on in the UK, or US?

It's easy to feel powerless, but we can help by donating to the aid effort. So click here to donate to Save the Children, or alternatively visit the Bloggers for Haiti justgiving page, which has been set up by some enterprising members of British Mummy Bloggers.

It raises money for Shelterbox, an international disaster relief charity specialising in emergency shelter provision. Each Shelterbox includes not only a ten person tent and a range of survival equipment, but a children's pack including crayons, drawing boxes and pens. So far the Bloggers for Haiti donations have raised over 2,000 pounds; so let's make it more.
