Give a little love to the haitians

I'm sure most of you heard about Haiti. Well I live in the Philippines so I felt and I cant stop thinking of how lucky we were safe and nothing happened to us and I also cant stop thinking of how unfortunate they were. For those of you who don't know what happened here is the news.

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake centered approximately 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, at 16:53:09 local time (21:53:09 UTC) on Tuesday 12 January 2010. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi). The United States Geological Survey recorded a series of aftershocks, twelve of them between magnitudes 5.0 and 5.9.
Most of Port-au-Prince's major landmarks were significantly damaged or destroyed in the earthquake, including the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building, the Port-au-Prince Cathedral, the main jail and at least one hospital.The United Nations reported that headquarters of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), located in the capital, collapsed and that a large number of UN personnel were unaccounted for including the Mission's Chief.
Haiti is a poor country, ranked 149th on the Human Development Index (of 182 countries). There is concern about the emergency services' ability to cope with a major disaster, and the country is considered "economically vulnerable" by the Food and Agriculture Organization.

So this is it, Haiti, a poor country, has suffered this major catastrophe and what shocked me the most was the destruction of a children hospital.
Maybe we don't know the people that live there but knowing it could have been us it really woke me up and i decided to help, so please if you have somewhere to go to donate things do it, because they really need sun after this awfully rainy day. They need us as someday we might need them, please do everything you can because even one can can draw a wonderful smile on a sad face.

Thanks for reading, I hope you can help in any way. With one dollar left from a shopping day, one can you take on the supermarket, anything, because what we consider nothing is now everything to them please, please help.
