Do What You Can

The events in Haiti are haunting and incomprehensible. I am amazed and grateful for the things I have seen people doing...donating money, and giving their time and effort to help.

A day or two ago, I read about a singer/songwriter who put up one of his prized guitars for auction, and ended up raising $51,000 for Haiti. He raised the bar for me by making the effort of a personal sacrifice. I want to do more than I've already done...to make it personal for me, as well. I'm still not sure what form that will take for me, personally. I am not a singer and I don't have a first in a series guitar to donate, but I can give something.

I am digging deep inside myself to find out what it is that I can give. It might end up being a lot of small things. But, as Stevie Wonder said during the "Hope For Haiti Concert," "A whole lot of littles make a whole lot of lots," so I will do what I can.

Please consider joining this effort.
