Saturday, January 16, 2010


U.S. President, Barack Obama, announced today that two former U.S. Presidents, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are teaming up to canvass for national fund drive to raise money for Haiti's earthquake survivors.

In President Barack Obama’s words, “By coming together in this way, these two leaders send an unmistakable message to the people of Haiti and to the people of the world. In these difficult hours, America stands united. We stand united with the people of Haiti,"

Former President George W. Bush is visiting the White House since he left office almost exactly a year ago. Former President George W. Bush expressed how he and his wife, former First Lady Laura Bush had been deeply saddened by the scenes of horror and death from Haiti. He encouraged donors to contribute cash instead of contributions of non cash items. Former President George W. Bush assures donors that their cash contributions would be well spent and accounted for him and President Clinton. He said, “One of the things President Clinton and I will make sure is your money is spent wisely."

It's so nice to see all three presidents working together for a wonderful cause. I was so upset with Bush because of his slow responce to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
