Taking Action

When a disaster such as the earthquake in Haiti occurs, it is of critical importance that those who can help take action.

Please consider making a donation to help the organizations that have mobilized to provide assistance to Haiti. Even a $10 donation would be incredibly helpful! As so many of the donations pouring in are made through credit card, American Express and Visa just announced that they will waive the fees on donations.

American Express will waive the fees through the end of February to these charitable funds established specifically to respond to the devastation in Haiti:
Visa will also waive all fees related to donations to Haiti relief organizations.

This means that 100% of your contribution will go to the charitable funds.

InterAction is the largest coalition of US based international nongovernmental organizations that are focused on the world's poorest and most vulnerable people, and includes the American Red Cross, Oxfam, Unicef, the United Way, and Habitat for Humanity (as well as dozens of additional organizations).

A donation from each reader will go a long way for Haiti - thank you for your generosity!
