It’s the human spirit that emerges as the real winner in times of adversity. The earthquake in Haiti saw devastating effects for more than 50,000 people but it also saw the goodness of heart of those willing to help the distraught. We are told thatÂ millions of dollars have been raised through many small donations ranging between $5 and $10. However, apart from these there have been manu single donations in larger amounts as well. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Olivia Wilde, Tiger Woods and Madonna are just a few of the people who have given a large portion for the benefit of mankind in distress.
The world has been shaken by this earthquake. Incidents like these are a constant reminder of how vulnerable our lives are. It takes years, decades and centuries to build lives and cities. And it takes less than a minute to take them all away.
We hear that George Clooney made a special appearance during the Hope for Haiti telethon on MTV encouraging people to give as much help as they could for their Haitian friends. It is a time of need and we are glad that famous people are doing their job responsibily inspiring thousands!
