Helping Haiti

As our readers no doubt already know, Haiti has been hit with a devastating earthquake, and faces further danger from a potential tsunami. The country is in shambles, with its government and much of its infrastructure severely damaged.

In 2005, our readers helped victims of Hurricane Katrina.

In 2008, it was an earthquake in China.

Now, early in 2010, we're asking our readers to step up - again - to help out the Haitian people. As with the Chinese earthquake, I'm recommending that folks donate to the MercyCorps, but there are a lot of other great organizations, as well.

Here's the link to the MercyCorps site.

We welcome any other suggestions in the comments, and will move them up to the main post as appropriate.

I'll also offer this prayer on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Haiti:

Baruch ata Adonai, rofei hacholim.

Blessed are you, Oh G-d, source of healing.
