Helping China

As of the recording of this video, more than 50,000 people are confirmed dead in China after last week’s Earthquake. Thousands more are feared dead. Several thousand more are injured, starving, and homeless. This isn’t about politics, nor creed, race or color. It’s about human beings… just like you.

They need our help, folks. Basic necessities are impossible to come by in China. They need blankets, water, food, tents, clothing and formula for children and babies that are now starving. This is a tragedy of horrific measure. Think back to 9/11. Remember how the World came together, reaching out to those in the United States who desperately needed help. That’s what we need to do now. We have a social responsibility as a citizen of this planet to do what we can.

There are many ways we can help. You can choose to make a monetary donation, a donation of goods, or even become a volunteer with the Red Cross.

I don’t care if you’re green with purple polka dots, live on Mars, and have no religious or political affiliations. Things like that don’t matter right now. What matters is those people who are dying, those thousands who are injured and need our help. They are human beings, just as you are. It could happen to you, at any time.

In addition to the Red Cross, there are a number of other organizations who are accepting donations in order to help the victims of this horrible tragedy.

Even if you cannot afford to help monitarily, I urge you to say a prayer tonight for those people if you pray. Light a candle. Send positive energy. Whatever it is you do in times of tragedy, I ask you to have a quiet moment to remember those lost, and hope for those left behind.
