140,000 people were killed.
1,000,000 people are homeless.
I have been reading the blog of a doctor from Minnesota that is in Haiti providing medical care for the injured. She and her medical team are in immediate need of the following:
Emergency medicine/trauma surgery PA (or similar skill set)
Orthopedic PA (or similar skill set)
If you know someone that may be qualified, please pass this information on to them immediately. They are looking to have these people flown into Haiti in two days from now.
Click here or here or here to read about their relief efforts.
I promise you will be inspired.
Or click here to see pictures taken by a Minnesota family that is currently living and serving in Haiti.
Or click here to read about the efforts of New Kids on the Block, the Wheelchair Foundation and others to send a plane to Haiti. Yes ... I❤NKOTB.
I have seen a few bloggers make a pact with their readers to donate a certain amount of money for every comment left on their blogs. Wow ... I'm inspired.
I want to do it. It seems so much bigger than little, old me ... but whatever, even a handful of comments are better than nothing.
My pact --->
I will donate 25 cents for every comment left on this post between now and Friday, January 29, 2010, at 12:00 noon EST.

Spread the word ... Haiti needs our help!
