Haiti Relief Efforts – How You Can Help.

by J. Money on Wednesday, January 20, 2010

As you know, Haiti’s in a very sad state of affairs and they need all the help they can get. I don’t like asking people to donate much because it feels kinda weird, so I won’t, BUT I did want to spread the word in case you *are* looking to give back. As a blogger we have the awesome ability to reach more people than in our “normal” lives, so I feel it’s important to share and do what we can to help :)

I’ve personally been texting “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 each time to Red Cross, but there are a ton of other options available too. Google has a GREAT relief page set up (http://www.google.com/relief/haitiearthquake/) with a bunch of legit ways you can help, as well as support numbers, updated news, links, etc. And prayers work too!

If you DO decide to donate, please be sure to check out these other bloggers who are matching or donating on your behalf just for leaving a comment. Or even better, a blog post:

  • The Centsible Life: Kelly is donating 10 cents for ever comment dropped, but even better is that many of us are matching those amounts too!
  • Ask Mr. Credit Card: Mr. CC will donate $1.00 per comment AND $5 for every post a blogger writes about supporting Haiti.
  • Money Saving Mom: Crystal is donating 30 cents per comment AND $10 for every blog post supporting Haiti!

With enough luck and love it’ll all make a difference :)

PS: Some of my favorite tools:
