I feel bad, but when do they start taking care of themselves, we do.

What about the Dominican Republic? Why is it always Haiti?
Doesn't the DR need help too?

And other than Haitians living in South Florida, who cares about Haiti?

It is terrible how these storms can destroy lives, however, Americans can not be the "Big Brother" to the world. Let's feed our hungry, our homeless, let's take care of our people FIRST. Any mother knows we take care of our own before anyone else. America needs to start being a good mother

Lets wait until IKE gets done with it, then we can make one trip. No reason to feed people who will be dead in 5 more days.

Did you bleeding hearts send aid to the Gulf coast region last week or do you exist to artificially support Haiti with US dollars?

I like the other post - Send Haitians!

Americans need to take care of their own first!

Who cares? Why are we sending our money anywhere but within the US? WHO SENT MONEY TO ME WHEN WILMA DID $100,000 IN DAMAGE TO MY HOUSE? Haiti? No. Iraq? No. That idiotic professor who is raising money for the terrorists? No.

My insurance company who I've been paying for 25 years sent me money. So get a freakin job, get some insurance, wherever you live, and take care of yourselves.

Why do we have to babysit the whole world. Then we turn around and everyone hates us, except when they have a disaster. Let China or Russia or Iran do it. Or the Saudis. They all seem to have all of the money these days, but they hoard it.

TIME TO TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN! There are enough storms out there (wake up, Ike is a Cat 4) that we'll need the money right here at home. Keep it.

I will never donate to Food for the Poor. F them.

Why don't they send the help to storm ravaged Louisiana and Mississippi? I am so sick of taxpayers money constantly being sent to these other countries when we don't even take care of our own!

This country is in the general flow of all hurricanes and should not be inhabited.

Haiti needs a good decimating of it's population.
Stop interfering with nature.

Sending relif just delays the outcome.

SEnd the relief directly to the government officials in haiti. That will make it easier for them to steal it all. As they always do.
No cash for you

The only good thing about Haiti is that it slows down hurricanes. Otherwise, all we get from them is immigrants floating here on tires and never learning English. F them.

I dont believe and fellow human is an animal, but I as sick of this country spending money on everyone else except our own. I think as Americans we have lost touch with the fact that we are the ones in need of help. Save your money for your own. Looks like we are going to need it.

The bigotry and hate that is spewed out by the previous posters to this article amazes me! They see the word "Haitian" and can't resist posting their vitriolic hate! They don't even read the article they are replying to.
The aid is not costing the U.S. taxpayers one cent. This is an effort by members of the Haitian communtiy to help their fellow countrymen. Funds are being collected from the Haitian community here in South Florida; people who work and earn money, which they have every right to spend any way they wish.
As far as the people of Haiti, they have been hit hard by a poor economy and three hurricanes in the past month. A little sympathy is due.
destroy all hatians

simply put, the hatians need to be saved from themselves. they really should be eradicated @least from our society (which they hate, mistreat & dispise), if not the planet. it would be a beautiful world w/o hatians. no? and as for sympathy,they have no sympathy for each other, let alone u or i.
