Help Haiti

I just heard on the news that as many as half a million are dead in Haiti. In fact, according to CNN, "About 3 million people - one-third of Haiti's population - were affected by the quake, the Red Cross estimated."

Half a million dead is nearly incomprehensible, but considering the total population and how many more are seriously affected, it's catastrophic. Here's how you can help:

Click here to donate to Doctors Without Borders.

Tell the US Administration to stop deporting Haitians.

Click here to donate to World Vision.

Click here to donate to UNICEF.

Lots more out there, I'm sure.
