Haiti Relief Yard Sale

I still really have no idea what to say about the tragic earthquake in Haiti. But I want to help.

I’m just thinking as I type here… I don’t have a whole bunch of money, and time is of the essence. I’ve seen some friends planning a car wash for every Saturday, and they’ll donate the money they make to the rescue and relief efforts.

What about a huge yard sale? What if I got ahold of everyone I know here in the Phoenix area, asked them to donate anything could spare, got some Uhaul trucks (maybe donated) and went around for a couple weeks picking it all up… then promoted it all over the place (Twitter, Facebook, Email, Fliers, Signs, News Stations, etc…).

I think I will.

Is this a crazy idea? Is there a better way?

I think I might put together the biggest yard sale Gilbert, Arizona has ever seen. And give every single penny to The Red Cross.

What do you think? If you live close by would you donate some stuff?

  1. I don’t have much but I would donate. I’m even willing to help and work the sale. Like you I don’t have much money but I do have my time and willingness to work.

  2. You know I’m in dude. I’ve been burdened with the same hope to help but just don’t have a lot and didn’t know how.

    I got stuff to donate and I can help work too…

  3. I just cleaned out my closet and was going to give this stuff away but never got around to it. Maybe God wanted me to hold onto it for this? I’m in!
