Freckle Face Photography {Help for Haiti} winnipeg photographer

We get the Winnipeg Free Press everyday. I love to have a cup of coffee and read the paper after my girls have gotten on the bus to go to school. But for last couple of weeks I haven’t read it. I can’t. The devastation in Haiti is heartbreaking. I tear up whenever I do catch a glimpse of it on the news. My kids asked me about it today as their school is raising funds. My middle child said they were raising money to help save people who were trapped under buildings. I almost lost it right there. How do you explain to a 7 year old the difference between a rescue mission and a recovery mission. Like I said, heartbreaking.

So what can I do to help? I can’t go to Haiti, I can’t give hundreds of dollars. But I can do this…

This is an effort started by Michele from Pinkletoes Photographyand Lyndsay from Life in Motion Photography which I’m sure will balloon across the globe.
