In the wake of the Haitian earthquake, it’s hard to find many positives, but one is the way that people are donating in droves. (Time, money, blood.) If you’re looking for an outlet to donate to, I have a few suggestions.
The State Department has set up a donation-by-text system. Text “Haiti” to 90999 and $10 will immediately be donated to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts. You will see the additional charge on your cell phone bill. The Red Cross (now, as always) can use donations that will be used effectively for medical assistance. Click here for details on how to give through the website.
Also, L.A.-based T-Shirt line, Kid Dangerous Grime Couture, designed the “HELP HAITI” tee, with 100% of proceeds going to the One Dome At A Time Emergency Fund. The price has been discounted to $35 in hopes of selling more. T-shirts are available for pre-order on the Kid Dangerous website and will be available for delivery by January 22nd.
