Craig Bierko has a brilliant idea for us to be able help the people of Haiti who suffering from the devastating effects of the 7.0 quake that happened on Wednesday. So many of us have to wanted to give money to help them, but financially we are trying to figure out how to do it. Well Craig came up with this genius idea and posted his plea on The Huffington Post that he titled “This Valentine’s Day, Let’s All Get Together and Make Love” and I thought it was so awesome that I had to share it with y’all and I hope you share it with others!

Last night I made a donation while watching CNN. A young girl had been trapped between two massive sheets of collapsed cement. She was terrified and the rescue workers kept her spirits high as they labored to free her, which they eventually did. Overcrowded conditions and the general mayhem of disaster complicated her delivery to a hospital and, by the time rescuers finally got her to a doctor the young girl had died.
My heart ached for this child – and it broke for her injured mother who was too weak to be told the news just yet.
I thought of my mother, my nieces, my beautiful girlfriend Meg and our dog Boo. I felt my heart swell to the point of bursting because all of the beautiful ladies in my life were healthy and out of harm’s way tonight.
And that’s when the ache in my heart became an idea.
Valentine’s Day is approaching – a day reserved for couples to celebrate their love for one another by giving flowers, candy, sharing a romantic dinner, exchanging gifts or spending a night in some cozy out of the way hotel.
I am suggesting we dedicate Valentine’s Day to those men and women who lost the love of their lives this week – or, right this moment, await news regarding a husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or child.
I’m not talking about romance – I’m talking about love.
And I’m talking about money. The money you’d spend on the flowers, the candy, the dinner, the cozy out of the way hotel. That money.
Ladies, take your boyfriend or husband by the hand and tell him that instead of roses, candy and dinner, you prefer to celebrate the miracle of love this year by giving – together, as a couple.
Let’s unite our hearts – right now, today – and offer a piece of the love in our own lives to those who need it desperately.
Gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, high school sweethearts, elderly and middle-aged couples alike – let’s celebrate this Valentine’s Day early by making love now.
Ladies, you know that this will be a lot easier if it comes from you, not us. Let your man know you’d like to donate the money you’d spend on indulging romance – and offer it together as a gesture of gratefulness for your good fortune – and in the name of those who suffer alone in misery.

It is such a simple thing to do instead of spending at least $100 on your special person on February 14th, how about using that money to help send supplies to Haiti? I will imagine I had someone to spend money on for Valentine’s Day and use that to share the love with the Haitians.
BTW Craig Bierko was just seen on CBS’s hit show The Good Wife doing a phenomenal job and soon we can see him on the Emmy winning Damages on FX.
