Earthquake Decimates Haiti Capital

Postby F1fth on Wed Jan 13, 2010 3:38 am

Apparently it happened just today, thousands are feared dead. It sounds very serious and quite tragic.

First AIDS, then pathetic leadership, limited resources, and now this.

What an ass-kicking from God.

If I could pray, I would. if you can, do.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

The death toll may well be in the tens of thousands. Truly a terrible event.

Giving to causes and charities is extremely easy now---with "texting donations" and online websites---I hope it all helps.

Yeah, a couple of us at work pooled some money together to send to them. Praying is nice, but it's better to accompany it with some action.

We'll have to wait a bit before we know.

I doubt they'd be online. They're either incapable of getting online or have better things to do than play risk right now.

Well, yeah.

A. I was thinking maybe some of their friends might know if they were safe

B. Maybe there would be a way for the CC community to rally around them.

that would be noble. we could all buy premium for a special account called disaster relief, and all the money would go to the victims. CC, this would make you look good. you could donate to The Red Cross, or some other organisation.

I could get behind that. Maybe offer a special medal or something to people who contribute (if that would help push people, I don't really care).
