As You Know…

I’m Canadian and I wanted to post this video of a statement made my our wonderful Governor General, Michaëlle Jean.  She is Haitian by birth and has an adopted child from Haiti.  She is in a unique position to not only understand the dire circumstances, but to also urge others to give as much as we can.  Lets help her shall we?

  1. thanks for sharing this! i’m still trying to decide the best way to help out haiti. red cross? other aid organizations?

    1. I think the Red Cross is the way to go, as well as UNICEF, but any charity that has been around for a long time and is trusted will do the job Jessie. Every contribution matters now and time is of the essence. HUGS

  2. Such a powerful statement. Raw emotion. How can you watch this and not be touched? So glad you shared this. You know, it’s easy to hear or read or see the numbers of the dead and forget that with each one, there is a family grieving.

    1. Haiti is very close to Canada for many reasons, the french history, our large Haitian communities and our course our Governor General. Thank you Bryan for your massive heart. Your donation will save a life.
