Spare A Thought, And Some Money, For Haiti

There's few countries in the world that have had fortunes as wretched as Haiti. And now this.

New York Times slideshow here, BBC slideshow here. And honestly, these pictures pale in comparison to the ones I'm watching on CNN right now. Just heart-breaking stuff.

If you are in the U.S., you can easily donate $10 by simply texting "Haiti" to 90999. There are plenty of other ways to donate and help; here are your options if you want to donate through Oxfam, here is the link if you want to go through Unicef, and here's the link to go through the International Red Cross.

Give a little, give a lot, give whatever you can, but make sure that you give.

Just wanted to add that Partners in Health are another great organization that have 20+ years of experience working in Haiti. Please consider them as well if you want to donate to the cause.
