    Anderson,
    I would very much like to make a personal contribution to little KIKI??
    and his family. I believe he's the little guy rescued with the arms thrown wide and a grin that melted every heart.
    I have made donations to the red cross, unicef and a personal donation to a fund established by a coworker for his elderly dad and
    other family who were displaced in the quake.
    If you have any information which you can give me for this amazing little boy, please send it. I can't stop thinking about him.

    Thank you

    Monley is such an incredible boy. My husband and I are happy to adopt him in this second if he needs a home!

    With all that infrastructure that is needed there, who is going to be in charge of making sure that homes are rebuilt, and the medical operations & follow-up care will take place, etc?

    We are all united and it shows in the outpour coming from all over the world. What a wonderful thing. In the depths of despair there is reason to hope.

    We have so many construction workers here who need work. The aid agencies and Haiti gov't should work together to coordinate getting our workers there to train Hatians in new construction techniques and help them rebuild.

    I think that Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta are what Haitians needed God Bless Them

    @Anderson and 360 team

    The Monley's cough is because of the dust from the rubble?

    I love you Anderson. You have a great heart & soul. We appreciate all that you do.

    I just finished reading "Dispatches from the Edge," and I can't help but wonder how Anderson is doing being in Haiti, working at the site of another disaster. I watch him on TV, and he is so compassionate to all he comes in contact with. I hope he is and stays well, both physically and emotionally.

    Anderson,
    Hi! I'm so glad Monley is doing well–and even appearing on your program.
    It's great to hear of more survivors being found–that people haven't given up searching–10 days is an unbelievably long time.

    Anderson, You would make a great father to Monley. Please consider adopting him.

    How much of every $ donated tonight will go towards Haiti?

  18. Kim

    Anderson: any word on how we can sponsor a Haitan child to come to US? sort of like a foster situation? have you heard of anything yet? My home is safe, full of love, and I am ready to "sponsor" a child.

    Anderson,
    What happened to the little girl and boy rescued the same day as the 72 yer old woman? day 7 or 8 I think. You mentioned their rescue breifly but nothing since that.

    Thank You CNN for correlating such a grand effort among celebrities

    Yes Anderson... There is a new generation of orphans in Haiti. I call them the "quake generation."

    He's probably tired too. I hope all that cement dust he inhaled clears up.

  24. Cynthia

    Thank you so much Mr. Cooper and Dr. Gupta and all of the CNN team onsite in Haiti. You are doing so much more than reporting...it is with great pride that all of your fellow Americans watch you helping the poor souls who have lost so much in Haiti. God Bless you all!

    We see palaces grand and buildings tall, we see them crumble, we see them fall, a mere scratch in a country so bleak and so poor, but the value of life there is worth so much more, from Barbados we see all the pain and the tears but we could never really feel their pain and their fears, so remember dear Hait in our thoughts and our prayers for a better tomorrow, and show that we care

    My husband and I are two of the many who have talked about Haitian adoption. It has come up in conversation with three other couples in our area (Williston, ND). We are all willing to adopt. I know it has been a lengthly process in the past. With the recent quake there is great concern over children being adopted without finding their families first. My question regards the children (over 300,000) who where already deemed orphans. Are there any special plans for these children for faster possible adoptions? This is a commen question being asked by myself and the other couples I know. We would like this information to be shared as soon as it is available. We would like to help. We have sent money, but we are seeing an obvious need and we have been led to say "This is not origianally what we had in mind for our family, but we are suddenly ready to see our family in a completely different way."

    Haiti needs schools so desperately. Free schools for all these kids.

    All the stuff being done for Haiti is wounderful but now is the time to quarantine areas and clean up the mess .

    Anderson, I am amazed at the job you're doing; your intelligence, sensitivity and deep understanding of human beings is truly a gift. Thank you for exposing what is going on, I can't wait to go to Haiti as a surgeon.

    If it wasn't for CNN and the reporters such as AC and Dr. Gupta and co-workers n crews in Haiti, I beleive thousands more would be dead.

    @roderick, I think that AC, Dr. Gupta, Gary T., Ivan, Chris and all the 360CNN team that has been in Haiti for days now are CNN Heroes!
    They all deserve to be nominated for that award too.
    Their work has been outstanding!

    Anderson you deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. This is a great thing that you and all the other networks that are supporting you. Sorry FOX News just doesn't get it. It's shameful.
