    I know right now is a tough time for everyone financially but even a small donation would make a difference. Below is a list of various reputable organizations that you can donate to.
    Thank You

    that is awesome Aspen... I already donated to the Red Cross... I hope many others will also donate to there favorite charity. Even if its $5.00 it will go a long way to help. Because if 100 people donated $5.00 that will be 500 bucks.

    on the News right this second, Red cross's servers has just crashed from the high volume of donations! More servers are being installed as we speak! They have brought in $5 million so far. You can donate $10 to Haiti relief by texting “Haiti” to 90999. American Red Cross Note the bottom left hand of the screen to make donations.

    Yes -- every "little bit" will sure add up! :) It's just so heartbreaking that Haiti already has more than it's share of so many problems... and now this. :(

    Most of the girls and guys just starting out in nursing still have big hearts and can't just sit idly(sp) by. They are the helpers and caregivers in this world. Gotta love them and hope that all they endure in the path they have chosen doesn't make them hard and cold on the inside.

    My fiance was saying the same thing about how some of the doctors and nurses become cold and isolate themselves from the patients. Let me tell you my fiance gets sad everytime one of her patients passes away... at first I was worried and kind got upset with her over it But Im realizing that she really cares for everyone of the patients she deals with. And I think she will do very well because of this..
