Afterward we compiled a poster, prayed together, and gave the kids an opportunity to donate some of their own money towards the relief efforts. I think it is hard for many of us to really comprehend the horror of it all, but every little bit of understanding makes a difference.
I decided rice and beans for lunch would be appropriate. We added cheese, which I don't think is authentic, but it meant we all actually ATE the lunch. :)
Our family has chosen to be apart of the relief efforts by supporting the work of Compassion, an organization we trust and have been connected with for a number of years.
I am amazed and impressed with all the support and generosity throughout the blogging community. Money Saving Mom has compiled a list of bloggers who are donating for every comment received, or otherwise participating in the relief effort. You can find her list here.
