    Prayers for the Haitians

    A HUGE earthquake hit 10 miles off the coast of Haiti today.
    Such an underdeveloped poor county and now this.

    A tsunami watch is now in affect.

    CNN right now has full coverage on Haiti, but no mention of Cuba. Evidently there is a plate which runs parallel through Hispaniola. Sounds like there is a good deal of damage. One hospital reportedly has collapsed entirely.

    This is so sad. I almost hate checking the news to see what the lastest is on this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to Haiti.

    Cellphone $10 donations can be sent to the Red Cross International Relief Fund by texting HAITI and sending to 90999.

    Arrow Aruba Helps Bring Aid to Haiti

    "Aruba Helps Bring Aid to Haiti
    http://www.travelagentcentral.com/aruba/aruba-helps-bring-aid-haiti-19325
    The island of Aruba is helping to bring aid to Haiti, following the devastating earthquake which nearly destroyed the country's capital city and killed thousands in the impoverished nation.

    Red Cross Aruba http://redcrossaruba.com/ is in the process of collecting funds from Aruban citizens and companies, and has been receiving an overwhelming number of calls from those looking to donate. Red Cross Aruba has opened bank accounts at all local banks for direct donations and will send the collected funds to Red Cross International, which is coordinating relief efforts with emergency supplies, technical assistance and other support to those in urgent need in Haiti. Red Cross Aruba is also organizing a relief effort to send local doctors and surgeons to Haiti to provide medical assistance along with Red Cross volunteers from Aruba.

    Setar Aruba, a telecommunications company, is donating money raised by every customer who texts the word "Haiti" to their call line, which will collect about $3 per text.

    Digicel Aruba, a telecommunications company, has donated $100,000 to a relief fund for Haiti, and is also donating 100 percent of proceeds from all customers who text the word "Help" to a call line that has been set up for the relief effort.

    MetaCorp, an Aruba-based holding company, has donated about $28,000 to Red Cross relief efforts and Burger King in Aruba has donated roughly $3,000.

    Additionally, De Schakel College, a private school on the island, is organizing fund raising activities and collecting clothing and supplies.
