Help for Haiti - 2010

Help for friends in Haiti

Date:  Thursday, 14 January 2010 17:16:34 -0700

Received this from a very reliable source. Glenn Spunaugle has the Rosebud Canyon home for older workers. He has been to Haiti.  There are so many spams going around on wanting you to help the people of Haiti, but very little of what you send will ever get to anyone that really needs it. One of the friends sent him a note and this was his response.

I received this this morning.  If you want to send it on please delete our name.

Dear Friends,

At this time cash seems to be the best and you may send it to me: 

Glenn Spunaugle
3800 S. Post Road
Guthrie, OK 73044

I will be getting the funds to Dan Henry in Haiti, and he will know where to best distribute it.

Thanks so much,

We are wondering how we can be of help. Can you give us some idea what is needed and where/how can we send it? We can send funds, clothing, what ever would be most helpful. Please let us know.

Dear friends,
I was working all afternoon trying to get into Haiti inthe next few days, but after communication with Dan Henry, I have decided to stay here for now. It seems that things may get dangerous over the next days and weeks, as people run out of food, water, gasoline, and all kinds of everyday supplies, and violence is very likely... See More.

The brother workers are staying at the convention grounds in Cabaret, and are going to work on saving the main house. It has severe damage, and building supplies are also in short supply. Several of the friends from Port-au-Prince are staying at the convention grounds now, as their homes are not habitable. There has been a tremendous outpouring from our friends here to send help, and once this crisis is past, there will be great needs for new homes, or rebuilding the old ones, etc. for a prolonged time.  It seems that there is no immediate medical needs among our friends, so we are grateful for that. We feel relieved to know that most of our friends escaped injury.  Dan wrote that one lady was missing and presumed dead, I haven't heard any more about her, and we may never know.

Thank you for all your care and concern, you probably will never know what this will mean to our Haitian brothers and sisters,

Glenn Spunaugle
