Help for Haiti

International Response Fund
The heartbreaking stories from Haiti keep pouring in, and we are encouraged to see the love pouring back out. So far, Americans have donated more than $150 million to various organizations dedicated to helping earthquake victims. Generation Y has also answered that call by rallying their social networks and donating via text message. More than $22 million has been donated through SMS alone, and the youth market plays a big part in that success. We know the work has just begun. Do your part by donating to a reputable charity. You can donate via text to the Red Cross by texting ‘Haiti’ to 90999, or sending your money to any number of good organizations. You can also help spread this message of need and support by downloading a banner ad for your site, email sig file or blog like the one above from the American Red Cross.
