Christina Lewellen, senior editor of Window & Door

I'm a mom, so there are moments that pop up from time to time, from which I have no choice but to accept that I'm getting older. One such case in point this past weekend: After watching the first few days of the Vancouver Olympics, my 6-year-old daughter was wandering around the house singing, "We Are The World."

She raised an eyebrow and told me I was "kind of old" when I explained that I was around for the original version, but in the next breath she turned serious and said, "Mom, are we doing enough to help Haiti?"

Hmmm. Good question, kiddo. Certainly, individuals are doing a lot to help. My daughter even made a donation at school to help. But I started digging around and a simple Google search of "business," "Haiti" and "donation" brings impressive headlines of companies of all sizes digging deep to contribute to the relief efforts as well.

Now I understand there's some controversy in all this and some legitimate questions about the ways in which we are approaching this heart-breaking disaster. But I'm curious to know if window and door companies have rallied their employees or dipped into the company coffers to send some monetary (or non-monetary) assistance to the devastated area? What are you doing to help Haiti? Send me an email to share your story.
