We can’t undo what happened yesterday in Haiti, but we can do what we can to make tomorrow better. Here’s how you can help.

Tom Vanderwell, who writes with us at BloodhoundBlog, our national real estate industry weblog, adopted two of his children from Haiti. He has long been involved with the orphanage there, even setting up their weblog: God’s Littlest Angels in Haiti.

Since yesterday’s earthquake, Tom has been working continuously with the orphanage’s staff, both to make sure they have what they need right now and to help them prepare for what seems likely to be a surge in orphaned children.

No doubt there are a lot of people appealing for your help right now, but Tom’s efforts could produce the most immediate and yet also the most lasting impact.

Read his post about the Haitian relief effort at BloodhoundBlog. And then, if you can, push the PayPal button at the bottom of that post to make a contribution.

There’s so little we can do, really, at times like this. But that little bit we can do can make a big difference to people who have lost everything — maybe even their parents.

    Thanks for the good idea about the orphaned children. I have been trying to think of a good more specific cause to raise some funds for as I prepare to run a marathon. This is a neat and very important niche that I could get excited about supporting!
    All the best,
    John
