haiti disaster relief

I don’t have a working TV anymore, so I don’t know how the major news networks are doing with their coverage on Haiti. Having been through several large-scale disasters on the Gulf Coast, I know that public attention quickly becomes overwhelmed and so the coverage drifts away. But the need remains, the people remain.

International Red Cross
Doctors Without Borders
Habitat for Humanity
Convoy of Hope
UNICEF

Charity Navigator has a useful evaluation guide to the U.S.-based charitable groups that are active in the Haiti relief effort. Be sure to read the “Tips For Funding Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts” – including the guidelines for making text donations safely.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” -Anne Frank
