Generous Coloradans continue to pour into Haiti

The generous people of Southern Colorado continue to support the people of Haiti.

On Saturday, close to 100 people met at Glen Eyrie in Colorado Springs for a Haiti benefit, including music, entertainment, and speeches about the poverty-stricken country. Waddell and Reed Financial Advisors and Compassion International teamed up for the event, which featured speakers Rear Admiral Michael parks, a crisis responder in Haiti; Dr. Steven Foley, a crisis doctor in Haiti; and Geoff Peters, a member of the Compassion International Disaster Relief Team. Compassion has been in Haiti for more than 40 years helping its children.

"It's been a blessing just to be involved with Compassion to try to help the kids," said J Flanagan of Waddell and Reed, "Can you do anything alone? Absolutely. Just get out there and make a difference."

The groups received $20,000 in donations at the event alone.
