1) Text “HAITI” to “90999″ to donate $10 to the Red Cross — Our friends at the US State Department, including Katie Stanton (@kateatstate), very quickly put together this number to channel relief contributions directly to first responders who will be on the ground there.
2) Text “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to Yele Haiti – Wyclef Jean of the Fugees created this foundation to permanently improve the lives of the most impoverished in his home country of Haiti. Check out more on Yele Haiti.
3) Donate to Partners in Health (click here) — PIH (@pih_org) is already on the ground in Haiti and mobilizing their relief efforts. If you have heard of Paul Farmer, this is the organization he co-founded. Working to provide health care and education to the poorest of Haiti, PIH is the real deal.
4) Donate to Architecture for Humanity (click here) — Cameron Sinclair (@casinclair) and his non-profit Architecture for Humanity (@archforhumanity) can be found at virtually every developing world disaster site on the planet. These guys are a collection of design and housing geniuses who work tirelessly to provide shelter for the most deserving.
5) Donate to charity:water (click here) — charity:water work to bring clean water to the 1 billion people on the planet who don’t have it. Recently, the organization’s founder Scott Harrison traveled to Haiti to commence operations in that country and already thousands of Haitians have clean water to drink. Every dollar of support to C:W goes fully and immediately to work in the field.
There is nothing up yet (9 a.m. Pacific) on the Church website for relief we are marshaling, but I have no doubt there will be soon. Keep the people of Haiti in your prayers- these kinds of disasters hit the poorest people the hardest.
