Charity organizations always mean well and most of the time, during a crisis, they do well. Yet sometimes, they land a little off the mark. In the case of the Faith Comes By Hearing group, their solar powered bibles--audio bibles that broadcast the holy scriptures in Haitian Creole--are a lot off the mark.

I don’t care how devout you are. When your house is in ruins, your neighbors are wielding shotguns to protect their water, and looters are making off with everything, all you want are food, water and shelter. The solar powered bibles from Faith Comes By Hearing are none of those things. But it's the thought that counts, right? Stats for Solar Powered Bibles Trending: Older & Chilly
