7-year-old Boy Raises Huge Sum for Haiti

A seven-year-old British boy has raised more than 60,000 pounds ($107,000) in a day for survivors of the Haiti earthquake by doing a sponsored bike ride. According to ABC News.

It was really so very kind of this little boy that he was able to raised a funds for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Charlie Simpson set out to collect around 500 pounds ($890) for a UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) appeal by cycling eight kilometres around his local park in London, but his efforts inspired hundreds of people to donate online.

He started his fundraising efforts after seeing shocking images of children being pulled alive from the rubble in the Caribbean nation.

"My name is Charlie Simpson, I want to do a Sponsored Bike Ride for Haiti because there was a big earthquake and loads of people have lost their lives. I want to make some money to buy food, water and tents for everyone in Haiti," he wrote on his website.

Haiti Earthquake

Have you heard the news about the earthquake in Haiti? A lot of people were died, people that are still missing, houses that collapsed and people that were trapped on the buildings.

The earthquake that happened in Haiti last January 12, 2010 really was a disaster.

Here's a detailed information about the earthquake.

Source: Wikipedia

The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake centred approximately 25 kilometres (16 mi) from Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, which struck at 16:53:09 local time (21:53:09 UTC) on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 13 kilometres (8.1 mi). The United States Geological Survery recorded a series of aftershocks, fourteen of them between magnitudes 5.0 and 5.9. The International Red Cross estimates that there have been as many as three million people affected by the quake, and an estimated 450,000–500,000 deaths.

Most of Port-au-Prince's major landmarks were significantly damaged or destroyed in the earthquake, including the Presidential Palace (though the President survived), the National Assembly building, the Port-au-Prince Cathedral, and the main jail. All hospitals were destroyed or so badly damaged that they have been abandoned. The United Nations reported that headquarters of the United Nations stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), located in the capital, collapsed and that a large number of UN personnel were unaccounted for. The Mission's Chief, Hedi Annabi, was confirmed dead on 13 January by President Rene Preval.

New Year's Predictions

If you notice, before the first day of 2010, there are a lot of predictions that are going on. Some of the predictions are from some famous fortune teller, some are from other people but do you really believe on it? I mean, are those words from those fortune tellers are true? Do you believe on them? For me, I really don't! Because there's NO ONE who know what will happen in the future aside from GOD.

How about you? What can you say about this topic?
