My sister Liz is a social worker in LA. She's worked in orphanages in Quito and Nairobi. She's been asked to go to Haiti to help displaced orphans.
She needs to raise $2000 within 24 hours to go. If you can spare $10, the details are in this email from Liz:
The group I am going through is Visiting Orphans Org. (visitingorphans.org) They have an orphanage in Haiti - Danita's Children's Home. I will go to Haiti from Jan. 31- Feb. 7 to help gather displaced children and bring them to the orphanage, among other things. I need to raise $2,000 this weekend. There are two ways to donate (all tax deductible) 1st- send a payment through pay pal to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can go to the Executive Director's blog at http://isaiah49.blogspot.com and click on the CLICK IN link on the main page. Either way make sure to list my name (Elizabeth Alexander). I am really trying to gather donations within the next 24 hours. If people can not donate I would be grateful to just have their prayers!
