Haiti Relief Efforts Underway


Following Tuesday's devastating earthquake in Haiti, relief organizations are already beginning to raise funds. For those of you looking to donate easily and quickly, donations to the American Red Cross can be made either online or by texting HAITI to 90999 (which will give $10 and will appear as a charge on your phone bill). You can also donate $5 via text to Yele Haiti, Wyclef Jean's organization, by texting Yele to 501 501.

Charity Navigator, which ranks charity organizations based off organizational efficiency and responsiveness, already has a page up with the best-rated organizations working in Haiti. Top ranked organizations include Partners in Health, Doctors Without Borders, and Direct Relief International.
