Grandstanding in the media is likely true. And your story hurts a little bit. Last time I was in Hinche my friend there said, When you come can you bring shoes for the children.

And that sending money is easier than packing shoes but there are so few kids' shoes available.

I told my grandsons, who told their friends, and Kids Helping Kids in Haiti collected 65 lbs of shoes.

All those people now care more for Haiti than the the flood victims in Calgary, CA or those in the Himalayas.
