There's a ton of news out there today about the earthquake that's just hit Haiti and the devastation that it's already caused. I won't re-hash it all here, but it's enough to say that it's looking and sounding like a pretty horrible situation.

If you want to help out, one thing that I've seen mentioned a few times from a few sources I trust (and they all seem to have confirmed this directly), is to text HAITI to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross relief fund. The donations add up quick, so it really can help.

To donate more than $10 or to find other ways to help, I'd head over to www.redcross.org for other options.

Update: It looks like the donations are definitely working already. They've raised over $800,000 at last count. That's pretty incredible I think.

Glad to see this post

Just a warning to people... Beware of profiteers and fraud!!! :angry:

Im sure the Red Cross is OK, but if you want to be sure the organization you want to donate to is legitimate the Government has them listed online

is the place for canadians to check them.... Im sure there are equivalents in other countries :)

Thanks Atnevon and Dhemigod! :D

It's all very sad. Haiti is such a poor country as well. It's / they're going to really need help.
