Giving aid to the victims in Haiti

The Better Business Bureau reminds us that when we respond to a crisis, to give to those agencies that we know best. My suggestions are these...

For immediate relief:

Episcopal Relief & Development - Haiti Fund

Contributions to the Haiti Fund will provide critical assistance such as food, water and medicine, as well as long-term recovery and rehabilitation aid, in the aftermath of the January 12 earthquake.

American Red Cross - International Response Fund

You can help the victims of countless crises, like the recent earthquake in Haiti, around the world each year by making a financial gift to the American Red Cross International Response Fund, which will provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

or you can send a $10 Donation by Texting ‘Haiti’ to 90999

Doctors without Borders in Haiti

Your gift today will support emergency medical care for the men, women, and children affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Please give as generously as you can to our Haiti Earthquake Response and help us save lives.
