It is horrible, and we must give, if only $5.00.  Here is how you can help:

On the evening of January 12, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti resulting in one of the worst natural disasters in history. Like you, I have been watching the coverage of the aftermath and asking what I can do to help.

Below are a few ways that you can make a difference. This is not a complete list of worthy organizations pledging to help, but I think it is a good place to start. If you know of any other groups, please post them on the wall at my Facebook page. I want to hear from you.
