A blade shines in the darkest of the nights
A BIG THANK YOU
To all who left a comment on my post Relief Haiti Support to help raise funds for them. At the end of 24 January 2010, I received a total of 137 comments. Although my initial offer was €0,10 per comment, I have decided to multiply by 5x this sum and give € 68.50 to Doctors Without Borders.
Once again, THANK YOU for reaching out in times of needs.
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.
