Hi AllNurses family,
As you all know by now, Haiti has been devastated by a 7.0 earthquake. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere-this was before the earthquake.
We need your help! RNs, LPN/LVNs/CNAs, please help by donating The Red Cross (please earmark it for Haiti), Yele Foundation (send text message to 501501 with the message 'Yele'), or any other foundation you feel comfortable with.
You can also get involved by fundraising within your churches, social groups, etc. Please appeal to your hospital/nursing homes to donate medical supplies to Haiti. If you have the time and capacity, please volunteer for a medical mission.
Nursing students, we need you too! Please fundraise and collect goods within your student body and alumni. Again, we need you!
I've been in shock pretty much the whole day, but I've finally snapped out of it. My grandmother is there and in my heart, I know she's safe.
Please AllNurses family, send your prayers to the people of Haiti.
