I am honored to be a part of TwitChange, the first ever celebrity tweet auction, which began yesterday and will last through Saturday, September 25th! My heart went out to those affected by the earthquake in Haiti last January and TwitChange truly is a fabulous and innovative way for all of us to help aHomeInHaiti.org! Anyone can place a bid to have their favorite celebrity follow them, tweet them or retweet them on Twitter!

- Bid on the opportunity to not only have me tweet you, but make a difference for A Home in Haiti in the process.

When I woke up this morning and saw on the news what had happened in Haiti, my heart just broke. Natural disasters, like this magnitude 7 earthquake, are the hardest to accept since we have no control over it. Fortunately, we do have control over the aftermath, and that is why it’s super important for everyone to reach out and do their part.

Get with your local Red Cross to find out how you can give supplies, clothing and food to those suffering in Haiti. At the moment, the best and fastest way to help is to donate money to the American Red Cross’s International Response Fund.
