My Bubble: Bloggers Unite For Haiti

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Haiti on Tuesday, leaving its citizens to deal with devastation and suffering that few of us can even imagine. Tuesday's earthquake has reduced large parts of the the country's capitol, Port Au Prince, to rubble and devastated their already poor infrastructure, making the task of delivering aid extremely difficult.

Official estimates from the region said that approximately 3 million people have been affected by this disaster and that somewhere between 45,000 to 50,000 people are feared to have died as a result of the earthquake.

The most important thing everyone can do is donate to organizations providing aid to the citizens of Haiti. As bloggers, we can also use our sites to motivate others to give. It takes just a few minutes to add a donation widget to your blog or write a post informing your readers about how to give.

Doctors Without Borders is one of the organizations in the best position to provide critical medical care to those affected by this disaster. You can easily add one of their donation widgets to your blog which can be found at http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/haiti-share.cfm.


You are the only one that creates your reality
