    Donate to Haiti

    Donate $10 to the Red Cross to be charged to your cell phone bill by texting "HAITI" to "90999."

    Re: Donate to Haiti

    Got a link for people to read more about it? Who manages it and such? Is it a Red Cross program or somebody who will get it there?

    Thx.

    +1. I have no idea if the OP's info is legit, but for some reason people like making up stuff about Haiti relief efforts:

    Re: Donate to Haiti

    In all seriousness the best way to deal with Haiti is to clear everyone out of there and level the place. I don't think it's smart to rebuild anything. I'd triple my donation if that was the plan.

    Re: Donate to Haiti

    Also,

    Haitian-American rapper Wyclef Jean's foundation to rebuild Haiti, Yéle, is also accepting text-message donations. Text "Yele" to 501501 to donate $5, which will be added to your next phone bill. You can also donate via the Yéle Foundation's website.

    EDIT: The website is: http://www.yele.org/

    What makes you think that is the BEST way to deal with this place? Most short sighted ignorant post of the new year so far.

    Re: Donate to Haiti

    Just saw this:

    U.S. cell phone users have contributed more than $5 million in $10 increments to the Red Cross for Haiti disaster relief, by far the largest outpouring of support via mobile devices in history.
    Haiti text donations to Red Cross pass $5M - Yahoo! News

    Re: Donate to Haiti

    Most short sighted ignorant post of the new year so far?

    Haiti was a garbage dump before the earthquake. It had little clean water, no sewer system, extreme evironmental problems, and rampant disease problems. Now it has all these problems times about a billion.
    Of course we need to get down and help with the medical and rescue but when it comes to rebuilding we seriously need to consider some other options. There have been about 10 major disasters there in the last decade. They haven't even come close to recovering from the storms from last year. We need to get people out of there and clean the place up. People shouldn't live in a place like Haiti with pre-quake conditions. That place is going to deteriorate even further now and we'll set up some shelters and rebuild some building but it would take tens of billions to make that place a non-garbage dump.
