Default HAITI DISASTER RELIEF, PLEASE DONATE NOW. Information inside.

Hello everyone,

I just thought I would post this here. I have a good friend who has spent large mounts of time in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, who fortunately is currently located in Kumasi, Ghana, who has lost several friends in this disaster, and has many many more friends there who are either unaccounted for, or who have lost everything. Anyway, I just thought that I would post some links here to help spur those here to donate.

When things like this happen, especially so close to home, it really puts things in perspective. I know we are all busy with our personal lives, and what not, but for me personally I feel it is the least we can do to take a moment of our time, and help in pretty much the only way many of us can, and that is with funds.

Below are some places where you can make a $10, or $5 donation, simply by sending a text message. All major cell phone carriers have waived standard fees for these txt messages ( which means if you are charged on a per message basis, or get a limited number per month, they will not count against your nor cost you) sent to donate money to help in the relief efforts in Haiti. Also, there is a link to CNN Impact your world, which has a comprehensive list of reputable organisations.

So far, the ARC is estimating that around 50,000 people have lost their lives, and upwards of 1.5 million are injured, many of them seriously. 50% of all buildings in Port-Au-Prince are completely destroyed, 90% are seriously damaged, and the port has been all but completely destroyed.


PLEASE TEXT MESSAGE TO DONATE:

Red Cross: Text HAITI to 90999 ($10 donation)

Yéle Haiti: Text YELE to 501501 ($5 donation)

United Way: Text HAITI to 864833 ($5 donation)

Intl Medical Corps: Text HAITI to 85944 ($10 donation)

Sorry, did not see the other thread posted. Was just making the quick rounds on boards I belong to in the little time I have. Feel free to add to this thread if you like. Thanks.

Thanks Cassie.

I replied to your thread too. I posted this one before I saw yours. I want to help but unfortunately the only way I really can is by donating money. It's the least that I could do.
