So, I was doing my daily read through of the Huffington Post Impact section and I came across this: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/02/17/the-8-companies-that-gave_n_466560.html
The Top 8 Companies that gave the most to Haiti. It was surprising to see that a couple of high grossing US companies didn’t make the cut like Walmart but it was good to see that according to CNN Money 350 Companies donated $146.8 Million dollars to the cause. What we need to see more of is companies investing in Haiti being rebuilt and not only that, but being rebuilt stronger so that goodness forbid they are racked by earthquakes again, their buildings would take to it better.
The old saying – ” Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day but teach him how to fish and he’ll eat everyday” is true. Not only do we need to extend a helping hand but we need to teach the people of Haiti how to press forward and how to be better structurally as a country.
Hopefully we all can realize that we need to do more than send money now. They will need continuous support and if you believe in praying, maybe offer up some of those.
