That place just goes from disaster to disaster. Then I remember that much of the Caribbean (my home area) sits in a seismic/hurricane zone.

Please don't tell me you're not aware that Haiti was hit with a 7.3 magnitude quake?

Trinidad is a little bit out of both the hurricane and earthquake loop, but still vulnerable, nonetheless.

I am..... a link with a list of charities is below.

Gravely injured Haitians pleaded for help after the strongest earthquake to hit the poor Caribbean nation in more than 200 years crushed thousands of structures. A Red Cross spokesman Paul said an estimated 3 million people may have been affected by the quake.

I like you Insane but this is sort of a touchy thread in a Christian room. Even if we did we wouldn't say we did.

This is totally appropriate in a Christian room. We should all come together in thought and prayer.

That's automatic but I won't divulge if I gave. Furthermore it can strong arm other Christians into giving.
