Please Help Haiti

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck near the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. Each day the we hear more horrors of the tragedy and suffering there. Disaster response efforts are underway, and the total effects of the quake are as-yet unknown.

Please consider supporting any of the following relief organizations:
American Red Cross
NetHope
Save the Children
World Vision International
Care
MercyCorps
Unicef

You can also text "HAITI" to "90999" and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your wireless bill.

I will return next week with my regular posts, but for now let's all send help and prayers to the people of Haiti.

  1. You can also go to http://wfp.org/haiti to help the World Food Programme!

    They're already on the ground, and helping to support the entire humanitarian rescue operation using their rapid-response team with planes, trucks and ships!

  2. Thank you for posting about this horrible tragedy. It is important that we pause from our usual subjects when needed as the blogger community is quite strong when united. There is also a site called yelle.org that belongs to Wyclef Jean, who is from Haiti, that donates all proceeds to the cause.

    Hugs,

  6. If you pay taxes, you will have helped Haiti! Obama is sending our(tax) money to help. It is ok to send more, though.
