The news this morning is devastating, a country already poor and in need like Haiti has been devastated and I shudder to think of what is going on there right now, all the people injured or dying in the streets or caught under rubble with no hope for aid.

I’m encouraging anyone to give a little, anything to the Red Cross International Relief Fund or you choose your charity of choice from a list like this .

An easy way to donate is:

For those interesting in helping immediately, simply text “HAITI” to “90999” and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.  A statement from the U.S. Department of State encourages this text message donation.
