Day 9 - A House in Haiti

Today I made my first payment to World Relief to build a house in Haiti.  For $35 a month this money will go to local residents as wages and materials to build houses to replace the ones lost in the earthquake.  I have not contributed to big relief efforts in the past because I felt like my small contribution wouldn't make a difference.  I like the idea that by myself I can fund the cost of an entire house that will help one specific family get out of the tents and into their own home.  It makes it personal.  Here's the link that tells about the program:
