Helping Haiti

If you're like me, you've been feeling pretty darn helpless the past couple days listening to the horrors of the earthquake disaster in Haiti. As much as I would like to just pick up and go there to help with the relief effort, finances, job, and school just won't allow it--(I am always amazed by those that do find a way to do this).

Instead, here are some easy (and legit) ways you can help right now:

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.

Musician Wyclef Jean, who's from Haiti, says if you text "Yele" to 501501, you'll automatically be donating $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund. The charge will show up on your phone bill. You can find out more about Yele here.

Give on-line at Partners In Health.
