Let's Help Haiti

It's hard not to be moved to tears by the images and stories of the rescue efforts in Haiti. With that, this week's best blog posts are ways you can donate to help the people of Haiti.
  • UNICEF --

  • American Red Cross --

  • According to the Red Cross' Twitter page, you can text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts. You can also donate online to Red Cross' International Response Fund.

  • Haitian-born musician Wyclef Jean's grassroots organization is accepting donations via text. By texting "Yele" to 501501, you'll automatically be donating $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund. Check out for more information.

  • The French organization Doctors Without Borders has been doing work in Haiti for years. Donate at
It's important to donate to legitimate organization. The FBI issued a list of guidelines to use before you send anyone money. 

I encourage everyone to do what they can, whether it means donating money, supplies or just saying a prayer. Please let me know if there are any that sites or associations that I may have missed.
