The impact of last week’s earthquake in Haiti will be felt for years to come. Not only is it terribly sad to see all the images on television and read about the struggles that the residents of Haiti are now facing, but as with many disasters it makes people want to reach out to help.
Here are some great ways you can help make a big difference:
1. Hand Me Downs for Haiti: Bring all your gently used clothes and shoes to either the House of Blues in San Diego or the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. This collection effort is run by Good Friends United. House of Blues is accepting donations through Sunday night, and the Belly Up is taking them through Tuesday, February 19.
2. Soles for Souls Shoe Drive: Sport Chalet is also accepting gently used shoes for men, women and children. You can call your local store or visit their website for more information. http://www.sportchalet.com/.
3. Text Donations: Many people have already done so, but it doesn’t hurt to pass this one along again…please tell your friends. You can text $10 or $5 donations to help Haiti. Either text “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 (through the Red Cross), or text “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 (you can do this up to six times). These are both legitimate sites and have been endorsed by CNN. You can also send money to legitimate organizations like the Red Cross, as money is what is needed most.
4. Help the orphan children of Haiti: I was especially touched to see the reports on the orphan children whose orphanage was destroyed. They have nowhere to go and although many of them were in the process of being adopted from familes outside of Haiti, the paperwork was destroyed in the earthquake. Many government workers familiar with these cases were killed as well. I am looking into ways to help get those children out of Haiti, but for now PLEASE help by calling the State Department and supporting temporary “humanitarian visas.” The American government is starting to grant these visas, and some children have left already.
If you are a Carlsbad area resident or agent you should be aware of the impact that the proposed new power plant could have on property values and quality of life in our area.
Please read my blog on this issue and stand united with the City of Carlsbad by attending the meeting February 1 and 2…it could make a big difference if a lot of residents show up. To read the blog and see the video from the City, go to http://s273898634.onlinehome.us/blog/?p=394.
Agents: Please pass along this information via your websites and to your spheres of influence. The more people that know of this and attend the meeting, the better our chances of getting the plant construction moved elsewhere, where it makes much more sense.
