So someone's status on Facebook earlier today was, "Don't be an a$$. Donate for Haiti." Seriously? I bit my tongue, but all I could think was, "Get over yourself." The status was for someone who is either employed or voluntarily staying home. So in between looking for the best weight loss supplement since having a baby, she's telling me how to spend the money I'm barely making? Thanks for nothing.
Maybe it's just me, but when there are celebrities dropping MILLIONS of dollars to help rebuild Haiti (which, if they'd been there helping out before, maybe it wouldn't have been so devastated BEFORE the earthquake...), I don't feel guilty for not giving part of my grocery money to help out. When something is getting so much focus and dedicated efforts, I'd rather spend my charity money a little closer to home. There are still Americans asking for help every day. As long as George Clooney, Wyclef Jean, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are doing their part for Haiti, I'm sure no one there is going to miss my $5 donation.
