So many ways to help Haiti!

Posted on: January 14, 2010

Did you know that the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti Tuesday struck with the force of several nuclear bombs!! No wonder it almost completely destroyed its capital, Port-au-Prince… One third of the island nation’s nine million inhabitants were affected by the quake… isn’t that scary!

Unlike Bradgelina, who donated 1 million dollars to Haiti relief, many of us do not have much to give… However, if we all donate just 1$ — the price of that chocolate bar you are craving — we can help out the over 3 million people affected by this earthquake…

Plus, there are several ways you can donate — so you get to pick what kind of help your money will provide. Here is a list:

Providing Basic Needs:
Canadian Red Cross
CARE
World Vision
UNICEF Canada
International Relief Teams
Save the Children
Catholic Relief Services
Samaritan’s Purse
Yéle Haiti
World Concern
Mercy Corps
Operation Blessing International
UN Central Emegergency Response Fund (CERF)
Mercy & Sharing

Providing Shelter:
Shelterbox
Habitat for Humanity International

Providing Medical Aid:
Direct Relief International
International Medical Corps
Medical Teams International
Doctors Without Borders
MAP International
The International Committee of the Red Cross
World Health Organization
Project Medishare

Providing Food:

World Food Programme
The Salvation Army
Compassion International
Food for the Poor

I’m sure some of these are American, but at the same time, who cares! The money all goes to help out those affected! Come on, just pick one and donate!
