Haiti- A country in need. Take Action now.

The Tea Drinker & I join the rest of the world in grieving for the people of Haiti. We can’t tear ourselves away from the TV and watching the news. We stare in awe at the devastation, horror, and great tragedy that has struck this country not far from our homeland. The images resonate with us, and weigh on our emotions. We are reeling from the stories of rescue efforts and survivors still being found five days after the earthquake.

Hope. A belief and wanting that circumstances and predicaments can turn around and work out for the best. I would like to add action to the equation. Hope keeps you going in times of great need, and for the people of Haiti--hope, love and prayer are all that they have left. Action needs to come from the rest of the world.

Our leaders are being very direct in what is needed: money. Donations will provide relief, food, water, aid, medicine, rescue, shelter and rebuilding for the earthquake survivors. Join us in this effort, and please donate, if you can. Any amount, $5, $10, $25 will help rebuild the life of an orphan, mother, father, brother, or sister in need.

We found the following two websites to be helpful. They are very easy to navigate and we were able to donate quickly. Impact Your World &

As President Obama stated, “The losses that have been suffered in Haiti are nothing less than devastating, and responding to a disaster of this magnitude will require every element of our national capacity." We raise our cup and donation to the survivors, and those helping them rebuild their lives.

**From now until the end of the month, Drink The Leaf will donate 10% of every order(excluding shipping) recieved to This organization is working to provide immediate relief and long-term support to the earthquake survivors.
