Beyond Words for Haiti

Thursday, February 18th, 2010 | Permalink

Words for Haiti found a new friend and her name is Dawn. She was in Haiti during the earthquake and generously made time to share her story with us and now you.

The idea behind Words for Haiti is to spread hope and encouragement to those who are suffering. However, in doing so, we also stumble upon new ways of helping; beyond words and even beyond monetary donations. Aid takes many forms and if during these hard times a monetary donation is not a possibility, maybe you can donate the old crutches you’ve had in the attic for 10 years, the three pairs of shoes you never wear, or any number of things we forget we have.

During the interview, she said something that struck me. It’s just a band-aid, what good can one band-aid do? One band-aid is near worthless; however, to someone who needs a band-aid to ward off infection it’s worth the world.

This was made possible through the work of let’s dabble and GiveForward.
