My Little Sister Goes to Haiti

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. ( 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 or you can go to the Executive Director's blog at 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!

I was just about to donate to your sister when I noticed that I wasn't on your list of "Very Smart People."
