fripodding and haiti: “one blood” deitrick haddon


Once again, I’ve been away longer than I intended. Life has been a little crazy and a little busy, but rest assured, things are good. Anything that isn’t, well, will soon get better in time.

One such thing I’ve been particularly keeping tabs about these past couple weeks is the tragedy in Haiti. I urge everyone to donate anything you can. Donations aren’t just about money, ya know. Clothes, food, blood, or even just your time. Surely there is an organization close to your home that will accept volunteers like you to help get supplies together to be shipped to the people suffering in Haiti. And of course, there’s always prayer. Never underestimate prayer. Let’s all come together and share love.

With that, today’s friPod is from one of my favorite gospel singers, singing a song that can actually be considered not-really-gospel. Deitrick Haddon singing “One Blood,” found on his latest and awesome album Revealed. Overall, this song is talking about humanity. Everyone on this planet has a common bond: we all have the same blood. Now is not the time to be technical and say things like “I’ve got B+ or O-!” Although, I’m probably the only who might say that, but you get what I’m saying.

The point is that we are all connected. This song was released way before this event happened, but it’s pretty relevant to what’s going on in Haiti. I felt it was appropriate to share the message. The message is simple: show love. And not just in Haiti, but everywhere. So keep this song in mind. And hopefully you’ll be inspired to donate to the cause if you haven’t already. Later today there is a telethon (on just about every other channel) so check it out. Since its payday, I’m doing what I can. Every little bit helps.

Lastly, be safe and wise about where you are donating. One of the easiest ways in today’s time is texting. To help with relief efforts, text “HAITI” to “90999” and $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross, charged to your cell phone bill. There are dozens of other ways. My request is that you donate for the right reasons. Matthew 6:1-4
