News of a 7.0 earthquake that rocked the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince has shocked the world. Many people wondering how they can help.
The best thing you can do is to donate money to one of the charitable organizations already on the ground. The following organizations already have volunteers working to help quake victims. Click through to any of the sites to make your tax-deductible donation.
Additionally, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross immediately by texting "Haiti" to 90999. The ten-dollar charge will appear on your next phone bill.
Money is tight for many of us here in the U.S., but the citizens of Haiti literally have nothing. Tens of thousands have died already, and without massive aid many thousands more of them will die in the days and weeks to come. Please consider giving any amount you can, however small. It will help.
