Haiti earthquake

In light of the terrible news out of Haiti and the rising death toll, I urge anyone reading this to donate whatever you can to the relief effort.

Texting ‘HAITI’ to 90999 automatically donates $10 to the Red Cross and is a quick way to give something. Or, you can donate online at https://american.redcross.org

Alternately,  you can visit www.haitiaction.net and donate to the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund, part of a grassroots democratic movement fighting to promote issues like sustainable agriculture, support for victims of political violence, women’s and trade union organizing, human rights monitoring, and education.

UPDATE: 1/15

A long list from the Huffington Post on all the various organizations through which you can donate.
