How about a "hope for America" for those whose lives have been destroyed by the economy - or lack thereof?

Actually I have donated everyday since the earthquake since I pay taxes.

I am with OonlyBonly. We need to get our economy, health care, roads, etc.In general words, We, the American people need to be put before the world in taking care of the down trodden, helpless, and hopeless.

I am a product of our economy. I lost my job in March, I send out resumes WHEN there are jobs to apply for. I am losing my home and I just had to give my car back last week, because I am unable to make the payments. I was making good money, paying for all of my responsibilities. Now, this....there have been all of these bailouts for large companies, why so they can harrass the little guys when they fall behind on thier bills. I am not trying to take away from from the tragic events in Haiti. I know they are in desperate need of help. But what about the middle income person, losing everything everything in the US??

How about helping those right here in the states?

I have donated a little but I hope to donate more later specifically for smart rebuilding and education. I do not agree with using the uniform building code as a standard, It is corporate friendly and environmentally dated. I hope I can find a charity or organization committed to building greener, less dependent on the grid (which doesn't exist there in the way we know it) earthquake resistant should be the code. Maybe Haiti could develop its own sustainable code. In crisis comes opportunity. I can't afford a new car, but keeping to budget lets me pay my bills. When I can't afford to spare even a few cents for other human beings , be they Katrina, terrorist, earthquake victims then I need to go to counseling. I often wonder if it is only drunks who feel that selfish?

Screw Hati............and they give away tax dollars to them; which we dont have anyway..............how about helping the united states..........

We will give where we can drop off bottled water, and simple medical supplies that are needed. I don't really trust anyone asking for money for Haiti (especially Hollywood cockroaches).

Man I am glad I worked Friday night...I remember how crappy the one after 9/11 was and how it hijacked every station.

put a huge metal container in a public parking lot and let us fill it with bottled water and canned goods, you scamming relief fund jerks do not deserve your cut. I'm curious how much of every dollar donated actually makes it to any area of devastation I bet less than %75, just a guess, anyone?

notanoobhere,

That sort of information is pretty open and available and from your comment, it is clear you would rather live with your supposition than bother to know the facts.

How embarassing for you.

i donated to the american red cross at dillons.

yankeevet 4 years, 11 months ago

my donation goes too the humane socitety ...

firefighter_48 4 years, 11 months ago

Why is the America red cross getting involved? The international red cross should be doing this. When I donate money to the America red cross because of the name I assumed it would be just for the people of the united states. Doing this I have decided to not donate money to them again.

No, I too am tired of donating huge amounts, we have our own problems and no will help us, they will probably cheer. Haiti is a hotbed of corruption so send food, water, and medical help, that's is it. It will be much more than they had before the earthquake.

I hadn't heard this liberal buzz word: Corporate Fascism. Silly liberals.

For the people of Haiti-- I have already donated new clothes through my kids' daycare, pennies through my kids' school and dollars on my cell phone bill through the Red Cross.
