YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE


An earthquake of 7.3 ma
Earthquake Devastation
gnitude struck very near the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010.
The total devastation is still unknown. The International Red Cross have estimated between 45,000 and 50,000 dead in Haiti. However, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has said speculating on the number of injuries and deaths was pointless until more information can be gathered.

As a global citizen it is our duty to help in all areas that we can. While our hearts ache desperately for the victims, the dead, the survivors -- for all of Haiti, we can do more. You can make a real difference and help those who are suffering from the earthquake in Haiti.

Please give as generously as you can and know every dollar helps. If each of us will only give a dollar, imagine the number of people we can help.

All the earnings from this article will be added to the donation this writer has already given.

The Red Cross

Give to The America Red Cross.


While The Red Cross is not currently accepting volunteers that are willing to travel to Haiti they need your financial contributions.

You can do this several ways.

You can make a donation to the American Red Cross International Response Fund at www.redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Donors can designate their gifts to Haiti relief. You can also donate $10 to Haiti relief by texting "HAITI" to 90999.

rspears, since it's similar....just thought you'd be interested in THIS blog article I found today...

http://crunchydata.com/demand-media-please-match-donations-to-hait/

Users are apparently putting some pressure on eHow to help. Would be nice....

I asked ehow to post this article for me as a feature to get exposure -- knowing a decent amount of donations would be made. I was told no.

And so I didn't feel they needed another article from me.

I've asked Info Barrel to do the same. I really hope that they see the need in this type of article having exposure.

@rspears01 This is the spirit we need more of. I will post your article, or a link to your article, whichever you prefer, on crunchydata.com, and remove ads from my site for at least the next ten days to increase the likelihood of visitors donating to Haiti relief. I believe that clicks for those organizations will raise more for Haiti than ad revenue would. Is this acceptable to you?

That is a fantastic idea!
Thanks so much for doing this!
When people pull together so much can be done -- my small effort to your effort and then onto someone else helping too...It's a domino affect of goodness.
Thanks so much!
