The largest earthquake in 200 years has devastated Haiti, and the death toll could reach thousands. This is an emergency– news correspondents in Haiti are calling it “worse than a war-zone.” Please text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross (it will be added to your phone bill).
Want to donate more or less than $10? Here are other easy ways to help (reposted from Huffington):
•UNICEF requests donations for relief for children in Haiti via their Haiti Earthquake Fund. You can also call 1-800-4UNICEF.
•Donate through Wyclef Jean’s foundation, Yele Haiti. Text “Yele” to 501501 and $5 will be charged to your phone bill and given to relief projects through the organization.
