I just saw on CNN that the Prime Minister of Haiti says it’s possible
that hundreds of thousands of people may have died in yesterday’s
earthquake!!! It’s just so sad. We know we can’t prevent these kinds of
natural disasters, but that’s the scariest thing about them… they
come without warning and these poor people just have no way of
escaping. I’ve seen a lot of people Twittering about it and I think
it’s really important to spread awareness about how we can help the
victims, their families and anyone affected by the disaster. It’s times
like this that social media can make a real difference and we can ALL
do something to help.
There are many ways to donate to the relief efforts and help the millions of people affected by this devastating earthquake. MSNBC has a complete list, so take a look and please donate. Think about all the text messages you’ll send today… one of them can make a real difference!
You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 (Charged to your phone bill.) to the Red Cross relief efforts and/or go to http://www.redcross.org to donate to the International Response Fund.
