This is going to be a quickie-post because the point of this is to get you

 OFF my blog 

and ON to some of the blogs and Etsy shops 

participating in the few-days-long help for Haiti event.

I found out yesterday about it all from my 
friend Rosemary from
you can read her blog post about it
and see a listing of just some
of the Etsy shops participating
(though the list is GROWING by the minute).

Here are two other blogs to check out with info on this:

A good place to start, is here:

and then


There are links on Angela's and on Rosemary's blogs to many of the
Etsy shops participating, so you can start there!

If ever there were a time when your wish-lists at Etsy can also do some
real good, 
NOW is the time!

Thanks for listening -- 

and thanks for

being part of

Hi Ruth,

I am also donating to Haiti through my etsy shop.

10% of all sales over the next month will go to Médecins Sans Frontières Australia
who already have teams helping the sick and injured in Haiti.

Thanks for spreading the word.

Hi Ruth,

What a beautiful post. The devastation is unbelievable. Yesterday, I saw via the TV, people praising God that they made it through.

Ruth, Thank you so much for praying for my MIL as I am praying for your mom. I wish we lived closer to her (she is in Co. and hubs has been doing a lot of commuting). I know God is watching over your mom and my MIL.

big hugs,

Oh my that face!

On my blog( the musing magpie blogspot) I paid a tribute to my brother who is airlifting victims out in a C-17... maybe he be the one to bring Amos home... he is away from his precious boys- 2 and 1 yr. old... and momma is prego with their first girl! to help families like your friends...He is soo honored and humbled to be allowed to serve these sweet people... I will be praying for his ( Amos')safe delivery.
My brother is Captain Jesse Newberry... in case it comes up!
