Haiti Tragedy: How YOU Can Help!!
Matt | On 15, Jan 2010
Remember, in the midst of all the news reports about the earthquake in Haiti, YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! Professional disaster relief organizations are saying that CASH (OR ONLINE/TEXT DONATIONS) are the best way to get resources to the needy as quickly as possible. There are a few ways to offer your support to the Haitian earthquake victims.
1. Online giving to the American Red Cross. Or, you can call in your donation to (800) RED-CROSS.
2. Text “HAITI” to 90999 to give a $10 donation, also to the American Red Cross. The donation will be added to your cell phone bill.
3. Text “Yele” to 501501 to give a $5 donation to singer Wyclef Jean’s Haitian charity, Yele Haiti. The donation will be added to your cell phone bill.
4. For Americans wishing to check on relatives in Haiti, you can call the State Department Operations Center at (888) 407-4747 or visit the department’s website.
5. The White House also posted information on its site with links to the Center for International Disaster Information.
6. Last, but certainly not least, keep the victims and their families in your PRAYERS!!!
