Lets give back to Haiti!

Hello my beautiful lovelies!!

I am back in action from my week hiatus!! For some reason it definitely felt longer than a week to me.

I saw that I have some new followers! Welcome and thank you so much for following! It really means a lot to me and I hope you enjoy reading my blog.

Before I start more posts, there is one major issue I wanted to address. I'm sure you've all seen what's going on in Haiti. The government of Haiti said the death toll could reach up to 200,000.
Those who have survived have their homes in rubble's.There's no way your heart can't be moved when you see the videos of what's going on there. Here's some info about what's going on in Haiti, Haiti. Click on Haiti and it will direct you.

Often we look at the TV watching all the horror going on over there wishing we could do something but then do nothing. But why? We can make a difference. Every little bit counts. I know you all have amazing hearts and this is why I'm encouraging you all to give your part to Haiti. Think of all the families, the little kids, having nothing. Lets prove our generation isn't lost! That we've got so much to offer! Let's show Haiti they will not be forgotten!

What can I possibly do? What can I offer you might be asking.
Right now they need donations! The  biggest need for them right now is for people to fund those  that are there rather then canned goods because there is no place to store them or take it over. Funding people like Samaritan's Purse that are already there helping will bring the most relief.

The pastor of my church is actually on the Board of Directors of Samaritan's Purse and I know first hand that all of the money goes directly to helping other people. A good thing about Samaritan's Purse is that not only are they the first one's there in the case of disaster, helping out, but they also present the gospel to these people.

Here's a link where you can donate and check videos out on what/ who Samaritan's Purse is, what's going on in Haiti, and how you can help!

I know this might be a weird post on my first day back on but I think this is just too important not to talk about! Not to do something about! This is our chance to do something.


  1. Great post!! I know of many places that are doing donating.. I contributed a little and although I want to do more, just do as much as your bank allows!

    WE can help!

  2. hi lex, so happy you are back, and you are so right about focusing on this.

    thanks for the post!


  3. hi my love. its so sad to hear all of this ive been keeping them in my prayers. love you hun


  4. YAY!! I MISS YOU GIRLS SOOO MUCH! How are you guys doing?!!

  5. First, I really like your blog, because what's not to like about a gun-toting cupcake?!? Second, I can't believe how bad it is in Haiti. Next week my church is collecting money, food, clothes, etc. to send to Haiti, so I'm definitely giving as much as I possibly can. My heart breaks for them.

  6. I'm trying to figure out ways I could help. My youth group is raising money for Haiti but I feel like I should be doing more....
