Haiti's Earthquake: 1 Week Later.

In Haiti, more than 200,000 are confirmed dead while many millions are injured, hungry, thirsty, and homeless. Let's keep the aid flowing, because the need won't end any time soon. In fact, things are getting worse as food and water run out. I hope others would do the same for me.

Here's a list of places to donate. Here's the US gov't list of aid agencies (my favorite at the moment is the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, because it gives 100% of donations straight to need (overhead is funded by the ex-prezs' foundations, I believe).

EDIT: Here's a great charity evaluator site to help weed through your options.

As always, remember that those easy-to-use cell-phone donation programs cost more than website donations, because there's one more intermediary sucking down some of the donation (credit-card company + cell-phone company), and the agency doesn't get the money until the phone company pays - usually after you pay your bill - so direct donations reach your chosen cause faster, too.
