"Instead of complaining about how much money is being raised for Haiti, take some pride in the fact that your fellow countrymen and women are the ones who are so generously giving of their time, talents and treasure to help their fellow human beings. Then smile and write a check or do some volunteer work — if not for Haiti then for an organization that is trying to eradicate the other problems you mention in your status update. Griping doesn't help. Giving does."
I hope none of our readers mind me "speaking" for them on Facebook. But I couldn't pass up an opportunity to set folks straight on American generosity and the people who help funnel it into important causes and stunning successes. OK … rant over — for now.
