I was a taller girl too, once.


I watched the news yesterday very grimly and my heart still aches at the devastation. I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on Haiti; my high school best friend was Haitian but I'm still relatively unknowledgeable about Haiti. I lost contact with her after we graduated and right now all I can think about is how little I can do and how she and so many Haitian immigrants are desperately trying to find out if their loved ones are okay.

All I can do is worry and think how many people are in a desperate situation and how it's completely fucking awful.

I'd like to hope that in some little way, I can help. I'm not going to pretend that throwing some money will be a personal salve to my worries. I do this in the hopes that somewhere down the line, someone is helped but not in the belief that by doing this, I'm a Good Person.

Today, I'm donating to Doctors Without Borders.

I'm also participating in help_haiti and you can find my thread here. I'm offering 2,000 words and if you want me to write fic for , I don't know, Glee or True Blood or some other fandom, I'll do it.

drvsilla has been compiling offerings. Go there and if you find someone offering something you'd like to bid on, please do so.

This is a good round up post of charities although do be careful. As kita0610 says, it's best to find one that's been involved with Haiti beforehand.
