Let’s take care of our own on the east coast and Haiti as well. There are millions of people who have been displaced by Hurricane Matthew and are in the middle of a mess right now. For those of you who are in a much better situation you can donate to Hope for Haiti or to the American Red Cross. Giving blood helps too and doesn’t cost a penny, so if you’re tight on cash but full on health, you can perform that act too.
