Please Donate to the American Red Cross - Haitan Disaster Victims

I would like to encourage you to donate to the American Red Cross and its efforts to help Haitian disaster victims.

On Tuesday, January 12th, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake that was centered just 10 miles from Port-au-Prince crippled Haiti; this is the strongest earthquake to hit this area in over 200 years. Communication and infrastructure networks have been severely disrupted and the vast devastation of this disaster is still coming into light.

Please consider making an immediate donation to the Red Cross or Yele to aid in the humanitarian relief effort. There are multiple ways to donate:

  • You can text "Haiti" to 90999 right now from your mobile phone and give $10 to the American Red Cross.
  • You can text "Yele" to 501501 right now from your mobile phone and give $5 to Wyclef Jean's Yele organization.
  • You can make a donation from the American Red Cross website by clicking here.
  • You can make a donation by visiting and click on the American Red Cross Logo.
Your donation will help provide food, water, temporary shelter, medical services, and emotional support to the victims in Haiti who need it most. Please also encourage your friends and family to donate by forwarding them this message.  Thank you!
