PLEASE HELP with CANNED GOODS or $$ DONATIONS !

More than 100,000 feared dead in Haiti quake !



If you're looking to help with the relief efforts in Haiti here are several ways to assist...I have posted several options. The smallest contribution will help these people who so desperately need our help !

Hip Hop artist Wyclef Jean is urging people to donate $5 to his Haitian charity, Yéle Haiti, by texting "YELE" to 501501. (The donation will be automatically charged to your cellphone bill.) His is one of many Haiti earthquake relief efforts underway.

The process is simple and you'll receive a text message back asking you to verify the donation of $5 donation which will be billed on your cell phone bill and which I'm sure will greatly appreciated. If you feel uncomfortable with the $5 donation process via text message, here's a few additional places to make donations to help.

They Deserve The Government They Have

I have had the opportunity to view much of what happens in Cuba currently, and most, if not all, is depressing and heartbreaking.

This video of a "school dance" in Cuba is without a doubt the most disgusting and heartbreaking of all because of who the victims are and what these adult pigs are creating for the future of Cuba.

Special thanks to a good friend, Alejandro Pascual of the San Carlos Institute in Key West, for the link.
