A Great Faith-Based Resource to Help Haiti


Are you anx­ious to help the earth­quake vic­tims in Haiti but not quite sure how to give? Red Cross? UNICEF? Etc., etc.? Cer­tainly those two are mag­nif­i­cent orga­ni­za­tions. But if you are look­ing for a unique, Christian-faith-based orga­ni­za­tion which has been on the ground in Haiti since the very begin­ning and which fun­nels 100 per­cent of our gifts to the earth­quake vic­tims, check out Lutheran Dis­as­ter Response to give through Lutheran Dis­as­ter Response, a vibrant min­istry of the Evan­gel­i­cal Lutheran Church in Amer­ica (ELCA). LDR did tremen­dous work after the 2004 tsunami, after Kat­rina, and after floods in my own region (North­west­ern MN) in 1997 and, most recently, last spring. LDR staff and vol­un­teers are among the first to arrive to any dis­as­ter site and are often the last to leave. I made my own dona­tion to LDR just this morn­ing. Please con­sider donat­ing — either through LDR or through another wor­thy organization.
