Haitians in our thoughts

Hello to new follower Twiggypeasticks, a vintage button addict, but a Yorkshire dweller, so all eccentricities accepted and you are very welcome... Read her entertaining blog (with great choice of music) here.

I was very sorry and saddened to see the devastation in Haiti and the destruction, death and misery that has come with the earthquake on Tuesday this week. I think the swift response by the international community, particularly America is to be welcomed although for those left in Haiti, distraught, some injured, many bereaved, and all bewildered by events, it obviously can't come quick enough. I am sure our thoughts are with them and I will send out remote healing in my meditation tonight.

This is a direct lift of the UK TimesOnline dated today 14 January 2010:

"British people wishing to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake are being advised by the UK government to donate money to the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal.

"Donors can call the DEC's dedicated Haiti Earthquake appeal line which is open 24 hours a day on 0370 6060 900, or go to the website and follow the simple instructions.

"Donations can also be sent to the DEC by post, with a cheque made payable to DEC Haiti Earthquake and addressed to DEC Haiti Earthquake, PO Box 999, London, EC3A 3AA.

"Donations can also be made on the High Street, by calling into any bank or post office and quoting Freepay 1449, or at branches of any of the DEC's member charities. The DEC is composed of 13 major UK aid agencies: Action Aid, British Red Cross, CAFOD, Care International UK, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide, Help the Aged, Islamic Relief, Merlin, Oxfam, Save the Children, Tearfund and World Vision."
