If you need a reason to open your hearts and your wallets to help the survivors of the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti here it is: it’s good for your karma and your feng shui. The photos of the devastation are heartbreaking.
If you are an artist, you can contribute the income from some of your t-shirt designs by sending your graphic design images directly to HaitiRelief@cafepress.com. CafePress.com is setting up a special shop where all proceeds will go to UNICEF‘s Haiti Relief Fund.
Musicmaker Wyclef Jean has been involved with helping the people of Haiti for awhile now and has enlisted other celebrities such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to work with his Yele Foundation. Now of course Yele will be targeting the survivors and the rebuilding that will follow. All you need do to contribute $5 to Wyclef’s org is to use your cell phone to text a message to 501501 and the message you type in is “YELE”. They will text you back a confirmation that you reply “Yes” to in order to collect the funds from your phone company.
These are just two organizations you can donate to. The Red Cross and many others are also good choices.
