How to help Haiti

With Tuesday’s 7.0 earthquake devastating Haiti, the count of the injured and the dead are going to grow to staggering numbers in the next few days. And the need for immediate assistance is only going to be magnified.

Because of the likelihood that there will be difficulties flying in and out of the country, experts are suggesting that for those wanting to help, it would be best to support an organization that already has it’s feet on the ground in the country.

MSNBC.com has provided a list of organizations already working in the country.

Possibly the simplest way to give:

For those interesting in helping immediately, simply text “HAITI” to “90999” and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. Even before the quake, only 46 percent of the population there had access to clean drinking water. After this disaster, that number will surely drop.

Please keep the people of Haiti in your thoughts and prayers.
