Help for Haiti: One Comment = One Donation

January 15 , 2010 by: Kate Sorensen Uncategorized

** I’m going to keep this post at the top all weekend long to encourage comments and blog link-ups. Please scroll down to find the latest deals from Coupon Cravings. **

I must say, I have been absolutely blown away by the selfless outpouring of support for the people of Haiti. This kind of overwhelming crisis really makes you step back, even in the midst of our own economic struggles, and realize how much we truly have when the Haitians have so little.

There are many ways to help, and even if you are struggling financially, you can donate simply by leaving comments on frugal blogs. Below is a list of ten blogs (though many more are doing the same) that are making donations based on the number of comments they receive. I hope you will visit them to show your support.

  • Money Saving Mom: Leave a comment sharing what you have done to help those in Haiti by Thursday (1/21) and Crystal will donate $.30 for each one to Numana.
  • Surviving the Stores: Leave a comment or a link to a blog post on what you are doing to help the Haitians and Rachel will donate $2 for each one (up to $500) to Compassion International.
  • Thrifty NW Mom: Leave a comment by end of day on Monday (1/18) and Jen will donate $.50 for every comment (up to $200) to World Vision.

I’m jumping on this incredibly important bandwagon as well. I will donate $1 for every comment or blog post link left by end of day on Monday (up to $500) sharing how you personally are helping with Haiti relief efforts, whether it’s by sending a donation by text message (text HAITI to 90999 to donate $10), working with your church or going through your stockpile to donate much-needed supplies to those in Haiti. I plan to make my donation to Save the Children.

Thank you so much for taking the time to participate. Please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers.

  • My teenage son went on a mission trip to Northwest Haiti Christian Mission summer before last, and he is/was supposed to return during spring break. He took a Mason jar to high school yesterday and today and asked his classmates to donate. He filled it both days and has about $100 to give to the missionaries there. See for updates on what they are seeing at their mission facilities.

  • I donated my (small) paypal balance to Save the Children.

  • Right now I now a lot of the missionaries in Haiti are already hurting. And now they have a lot of refuges in their area. We are close friends with some missionaries about 120 miles away from Port-Au-Prince and they have seen a great increase of people this week. I know my family and I will send what we can, but if you can send extra money do the missionaries in Haiti to help them with all the extra people who need food and medical help. Another great cause to send your money to is they were there hours after the earthquake. They help with food and flying people to Haiti. Check out their website. Thank you for all that you are doing. God Bless.

  • thanks for your generosity.

  • praying for haiti! donating to redcross

  • I don’t like the websites that say stuff like “For every person that clicks here, we’ll give a dollar to earthquake relief up to $500.” Either donate the sum of money to the Haiti relief or don’t, but marketing gimmics that require frivolous activity by consumers in order to raise money for a worthy philanthropic and humanitarian cause are in extreme poor taste, and are not in the true spirit of giving to those in desperate need.

    Put yourself in their situation– would you want your monetary aid dependent on some nonsense activity by website users?

    • I agree with you this is not the time to depend on comments to make a donation this people need all our help and to wait on comments to see how much to donate IS in poor taste!

  • I donated to Samaritan’s Purse.

  • Thank you!
