We've been working on how BridgeWay can help mobilize people to extend compassion to the people of Haiti.  After our Leadership Team meeting last night we've got a four-pronged approach:

1. Give to Haiti Relief.
Nazarene Compassionate Ministries is on the ground in Haiti, and is working to provide food, water, shelter, and medical attention.  You can give directly to NCM online here.

Our student ministry Switch is raising funds through collecting loose change. They raised several hundred dollars doing this for the Haiti clean water project, and I expect them to do it again!

2. Raise Awareness through Help Haiti T-shirts.
We've printed several Help Haiti T-shirts...and will be taking orders over the next several weeks.  You can get yours for $20...and the proceeds will go to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries work in Haiti.  It will also give you an opportunity to encourage others to give.  We're hoping to see over 100 people respond to this initiative this weekend!

3. Red Cross Blood Drive.
We're meeting with the Red Cross on Monday to plan for a blood drive to respond to the great need for blood associated with natural disasters.  Please consider making it a priority to donate & to encourage others to as well.  More info on this in the next week.

4. Pray for Haiti.
Make it a priority to be praying for our brothers and sisters in Haiti, and those on the ground working to extend compassion and assistance in the next days, weeks & months.

So how about you?  What are you doing personally to extend compassion?
