Earthquake Relief for Haiti

As originally posted on The Boogie Board by cali50:

Ash called me tonight and the tragedy in Haiti has really touched her. She asked if I would post some links for anyone who would like to make donations to the Haiti earthquake victims. I was watching ABC news tonight and they listed a site that has reputable agencies.

Here is their list:

AMERICAN RED CROSS
The American Red Cross pledged an initial $1 million to assist those affected by the devastation. The American Red Cross has partnered with the Haitian Red Cross, which is leading the response efforts.

People can donate by phone at (800) RED-CROSS or (800) 257-7575. Those who wish to donate by mail can do so by contacting their local Red Cross chapter or by mailing a donation to the following address:

The Salvation Army is accepting monetary donations to help assist in this relief effort. in the following ways:

Or to your local Salvation Army Corps – Please make sure checks are made out to The Salvation Army Haiti Relief Fund.

The easiest method for most people to help is via the Red Cross’ texting option, but I’m certain any help in any form will be greatly appreciated by everyone affected by this horror.
