To The Less Fortunate In Haiti
« on: January 14, 2010, 08:09:11 PM »
Just wanted to touch on the issue of the disaster in Haiti with the earth quake and wanted to ask that those who are believers to please pray for the thousands that have lost their lives as well as the families that will have to deal with the grief and for the thousands more that are in the dire situation they are in now. My God bless those that are unfortunate and help see them through this time of tragedy.

Thanks to BT and Spooky for your support on this. I am reminded at how blessed my life is and how fortunate I am to have clean water to drink and bathe, food to eat, clean clothing to wear, a home with a roof to protect me from the elements, electricity to cook my food to eat and to use for things that many people do not have, a car to get around and simplify my life, a working gas station so that I can fill up my car to get me from place to place, money so that I can buy the necessities of everyday life, intact hospitals filled with doctors and technicians to heal my ailments if need be and last to live in a country that is not impoverished.

These people were already in a situation of poverty and despair and then to have this happen to them is a fatal blow. Most of that country is poor, the country has no economy and they are now hopeless and struggling just to survive daily life.

I know the subject of tax dollars to a foreign country upsets many but I for one would not mind that money going to aid a country that is so devastated as Haiti is. I for one am trying to help and doing my part as many of you can as well .

Donating by Text: Haiti Fundraising Goes Viral:
 "Please text 'Yle' to 501501 to donate $5 to Yle Haiti. Your money will help with relief efforts. They need our help."

More info is here:
http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1953379_1953494_1953528,00.html

This is not something that you have to do but if you think about your life and how blessed you are, $5 to a country like that, and how bad the situation is, you will see that a sacrifice of $5 pales in comparison to what these people are going threw.

This is not a requirement of CVG, this is my personal message to anyone willing to help the less fortunate.

Thank you for your attention and God bless you all.

since this is a free country, im going to say this and people will disagree:

Screw Haiti. we need to look out for our own d*mn problems instead of being in everyone else's ish. there are people who go through natural disasters everyday in our own country and end up homeless but we dont do sh*t for them. So yea i support what I say, Screw Haiti, take care of ourselves first (and I say this as a Democrat)

Haiti is already screwed which is why the US is helping. The people that are homeless here have more opportunities then the people of Haiti. The homeless here choose to be homeless, they gave up on society but society has not given up one them. If you ask a homeless person here if they would be willing to work for minimum wage they would tell you that they make more money begging on the streets then they could make working for minimum wage.(I know this first hand, cause I've asked a few) These same homeless people also take advantage of shelters and soup kitchens but use the money they get from begging to buy things they don't need. They choose to do what they do cause they want to be "free" but free from every responsibility that an average person endures. The people of nature disasters are always being helped by government programs and by the generous donations from people that care.

the people of Haiti do not have welfare, meals on wheels or homeless shelters. They have to fight everyday for what they had and now they have nothing. Their own government is in shambles and will never recover without aid. Its about human compassion at this point and not about politics, at least not yet.

Your entitled to your belief but we are not talking about our deals with the middle east which is a farce to say the least, we are talking about a poor, helpless country that needs help and needs to be overhauled entirely.

Tell half of that to the people of New Orleans who are still homeless since the government didnt help them at all. Regardless if its right or wrong to help Haiti, the fact is that we have our own problems here to deal with, and we dont need to spend more money helping people of another country when ours needs the most help. Compassion for another can only work if if that person is stable, which isnt the case for this country.

I can't speak for the people of New Orleans and neither can you. If memory serves me correct, I seem to have seen many a habitat for humanity being built there for the less fortunate and many people volunteering to help them and donating millions of dollars. But again your view of the homeless here is skewed as this country has programs set up to help those individuals and most would rather live their lives as they are or want for more than they deserve. The sad part is that this countries government has meddled in affairs that most see as not needed with good cause, but we are not talking about those dealings we are talking about a poor country that has no resources and has now had everything crumble before them. In New Orleans the homeless have had many a hand to help them as should be and they can always move to another part of this country and rebuild. The Haitians do not have this option as the borders of their neighboring county have been closed to them as they have always been with exception to help those with extreme medical needs.

I am not trying to tell you that you need to help them nor an I stating that it is our governments responsibility to do so. I started this post for those who feel as I and If you don't then that is fine. But I will say that you are looking at their situation and our governments choice to help them with the wrong perspective. But like you said this is a free country so your entitled to feel as you do and post what you will. But saying that the government does not help those that are less fortunate in our own country is incorrect.

Most places have programs set up but do they help and the answer is no. I can see New Orleans and some other cities helping in that fashion. Most of those places are old and need high maintenance to keep disasters like floods in check. They are constantly building and most likely have some industrious jobs that need filling.

Hello, I am Brazil's military, we are part of MINUSTAH, or rather command the stabilization force in Haiti, this year we have a military field hospital in the country. and troops for security. probably at the end of this year, my infantry battalion will accomplish the mission there. I will feel honored to help those who have nothing and need so much. We all have problems in our countries. But this is no reason to turn our backs on our Haitian brothers. That's how I think ... .. as a military man and especially as a Christian, that God forbid that a horror like this that they are suffering
