Sometimes, you have to put BPD aside, and think about the rest of the world. Anyone without BPD who has read this blog probably thinks it’s a very selfish, self-centered, SOB story about a guy with emotional problems. If you fall into this category, I’ll freely admit that you’re partially correct. BPD can appear, at times, to be highly self-centered and ignorant of the needs of others.
So, for the time being, let’s focus on helping others who are in desperate need of relief.
The Haiti Earthquake has devastated the capital city of Port Au Prince, and some fear 100,000 are dead. Further, there are thousands more that have survived the quake and are now in need of medical attention, food, water, and shelter; things most of us probably take for granted. There is also need for basic infrastructure to clean up and organize the city, as well as need for security to preserve the rule of law.
I strongly urge anyone reading this post to please donate to the Haiti Relief Effort if you haven’t already. The amount you give is unimportant: but the fact that you took time to help others in a horrific situation has significant meaning.
The following is a list of charitable organizations listed on www.CNN.com as trustworthy and already taking action to help the people of Haiti. If you have any questions about where your donation will go or who it will benefit, I suggest calling the individual charity itself to make sure your money goes to the right hands.
I made a donation to World Vision.
Thanks and Let’s Hope Things Get Better for the people of Haiti.
