Help for Haiti

It's so strange -- I was working on a post about the problem of evil and right before I finished, the devastating earth quake hit Haiti. I don't feel like it's appropriate or necessary to complete that particular post at this point. The most pressing issue is for everyone to come together, regardless of differences of colour, beliefs or geography, to give help the people who are desperately need it.

Here in Canada, a great place to donate money is the Red Cross. However, no matter where you are there are many charities and foundations working towards the relief effort.

Please do what you can to help out. I've heard a lot of people say that one of the benefits of religion is that it promotes charity. Let's prove that generosity and empathy are universal human values, not just religious ones.
