What You Can Do To Help Haiti

Reported by Ellen - January 18, 2010 -

I've not posted links for ways to help the earthquake victims in Haiti because I've been leery about which charities to recommend. But Priscilla, Alex, Julie and BlogAds have stepped up to the plate: Priscilla notes that MSNBC has been promoting YeleHaiti, run by Wyclef Jean. You can text the word “Yele” to 501501. Alex recommended Doctors Without Borders. Julie found that Huffington Post has a place where you can purchase goods, such as first aid kits, water purification tablets, etc. needed for Haiti. There's also the Red Cross. You can donate to the American Red Cross by texting the word HAITI to 90999 -- an automatic $10 donation is made. There's also the newly minted Clinton/Bush Haiti Fund. You might note that we are running an ad this week (we're doing it free of charge) for the California Nurses Foundation to send nurses to Haiti.
