Help for Haiti

In the midst of our daily back and forth on the road to success, please take a moment today to offer a prayer, a kind thought, a moment of silent acknowledment for the people of Haiti.

Our hearts go out to our Haitian brothers and sisters in the wake of the tragic earthquakes and aftershocks that they have suffered. Please do what you can to be of service in their time of need.

Let the links below be your guide:

Donate through Wyclef Jean's foundation, Yele Haiti. Text "Yele" to 501501 and $5 will be charged to your phone bill and given to relief projects through the organization.

The American Red Cross is pledging an initial $200,000 to assist communities impacted by this earthquake. They expect to provide immediate needs for food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support. They are accepting donations through their International Response Fund.

Text Haiti to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross

UNICEF has issued a statement that "Children are always the most vulnerable population in any natural disaster, and UNICEF is there for them." UNICEF requests donations for relief for children in Haiti via their Haiti Earthquake Fund. You can also call 1-800-4UNICEF.
