Help Haiti

There are many easy ways to donate to relief efforts in Haiti. The NY Times posted a list of organizations that you can donate to, and you can find that by clicking here. Here are several ways you can do it just by texting on your cell phone:
  • Text the word “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 on behalf of the Y√©le Foundation, the leading contributor to rebuilding Haiti founded by Wyclef Jean.
  • Text the word “Haiti” to 85944 to donate $5 on behalf of the Rescue Union Mission and MedCorp International.
  • Text the word “Haiti” to 25383 to donate $5 On behalf of the Internal Rescue Committee.
  • Text the word “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 On behalf of the Red Cross in the U.S.
  • Text the word “Haiti” to 45678 (in Canada only) on behalf of the Salvation Army in Canada.
And, always my favorite, go here to donate through the Church's humanitarian services.

A quick plug for America: when you are giving, remember that you are doing it as a member of the most charitable country in the world. It's not only because we have the most wealth, but we give more proportionally than any other nation on this planet. That's a fact. I have a post about it brewing. Anyway, any amount that you can offer I'm sure will go a long ways.
