How You Can Help Haiti
Given yesterday’s tragic earthquake in Haiti, I am posting links to alternate websites and blogs if you are interested in donation.
The American Red Cross: http://newsroom.redcross.org/
Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund: http://www.yele.org/
Save the Children: http://www.savethechildren.org/
Direct Relief International: http://directrelief.org/
Mercy Corps: http://mercycorps.org/
Msnbc.com also lists many more charitable organizations in their article Haiti Earthquake: How to Help
You are also able to contribute via text. Text “HAITI” to “90999” and a donation of $10 will be made to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. The $10 will be charged to your cell phone bill.
It is believed that about 3 million people were affected by the quake and the Haitian Prime Minister estimated that several hundred thousand people may have died.
Haiti is one of the poorest contries in the world and could use all of the support it can get at this time.
