As I’m sure you already know, on Jan. 12, 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck near the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince. Disaster relief efforts were underway when this morning, while getting ready for work, I heard on the news that Haiti was rocked by another major earthquake. The area was already devastated before this morning’s quake. Help is GREATLY needed.
I was told to donate by texting “HAITI” to “90999.” I was told that a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross in my name to help with relief efforts, charged to my wireless bill. This is a great idea. However, my cell phone has not been able to get through the system. So I did some research to find the best way to donate to the cause.
Here are some suggested Web sites:Better Business Bureau (BBB) has a list of accountability standards to look for: - how they govern their organization; - how they spend their money; - the truthfulness of their representations; - and their willingness to disclose basic information to the public.
