Prayers & Hope for Haiti

Dear Friends,

As we “slip & slide” into February, let’s not forget that Haiti is still in desperate need of our help and prayers. I know many of you have already donated to a charity, but if you have not given or are inclined to give more, please help provide humanitarian aid to the people of Haiti. World news reports that survivors are in critical need of tents, food, and medical supplies.

Visit CharityNavigators.com for an evaluation and rating of charities or review a few of these reputable organizations below:

Thank you,

Linda Trevor & Company
