Haiti Relief Suppport - Comment to help raise funds

Since the earthquake disasters have hit Haiti on 12 January 2010, lots of well meaning people in the Twitter world retwitted what they thought was a good cause to call for help around the world, hélas some of these so called messages were just hoax and spams. I know it personally because this morning I received a 'told off message' by one twitter for spamming a hoax. I do not understand why such person would start a hoax like this - it's monstrous. I felt so despondent. With last night's news pictures of Haiti's disaster still fresh on my mind, I wondered to myself what and how I can help.

As if the universe has heard me, an answer came on Twitter - a retweet message from Hilda of Saffron & Blueberry. What I saw and read sincerely touched my heart and soul, making me smile and ask myself: "Now why didn't I think of that?! So I decided to hop on the wagon and to do my share to help the people of Haiti.

I'm not a world famous blogger nor do I have any sponsor to call to to match donation. I'm just a humble and simple stay-at home mom with some personal savings and together with Pierre, we are willing to part it for a very good cause. Pierre & I will match 0.10 € for every comment left on my blog (one per person, up to a 1000 comments) until 24 January 2010 included. The final amount will be donated to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti.

This is not a hoax. It is a REAL DONATION for the people of Haiti. So come on, let's do our bit! It is for a good cause, all you have to do is comment, every cents counts.

Here are a list of Food Bloggers doing similar type of fund raising efforts on their blog. Please visit them and leave a comment too. If you are a blogger and are doing a similar type of fund raising effort, please let me know and I'll add your link here. And lastly, please help to spread the word:

Thank you for your kind support.

Thank you for doing this. And just as a reminder to everyone (not because you haven't heard it, but maybe you haven't done it yet) you can donate $10 to the Red Cross via cell phone by texting the word HAITI to 90999.

Every cell phone carrier (in the US) is waiving the fees if you choose to do so.
