Canadians Donate! Reputable Charities for Haitian Relief!

We often question our luck. However did we as Canadians has luck befell us? We live in a country of bountiful resources, with a governmental and political system which--though we often find fault and complain--is essentially concerned with the welfare of its citizens and maintains our security and confidence. While natural disasters can occur anywhere in the world we have few to report. We are rich in blessings and the understanding that not all in this world are so lucky puzzles us! Disasters such as the devastation of the Earthquake in Haiti reinforces for us the knowledge of our cushioned lives and urges us to share our bounty with those suffering and in need!

I never feel comfortable donating to unknown charities or charities that seem to materialize out of the dust of disasters. My husband and I decided to seek out reputable Canadian organizations to forward donations in support of Haitian Relief and I thought I would share:

  1. I trust World Vision 100% as well. We have sponsored a child in Africa for several years now and I have a lot of confidence in them.
