Help the People of Haiti by Donating $10 to the Red Cross
The recent earthquake in Haiti has tragically taken tens of thousands of innocent lives. While we cannot save those lives, we can certainly provide aid in helping the hundreds thousands of other displaced Haitians get the food, water, shelter, and medical attention they so desperately need. The American Red Cross is offering several ways to make donations but they have really simplified it for all of us textaholics. You simply text “HAITI” to 90999 and a $10 donation will be sent in your name and added to your phone bill. I’ve done it and it only took 10 seconds out of my life.
Through text message donations alone, the Red Cross has already raised over $5 million and if everyone who reads this site on a daily basis gave $10, that alone would be several hundred thousand dollars in relief funds to help those suffering in Haiti. You all know that I am the first to crack a joke about anything and everything but there is also a time to stop and help out those in need. Even if all you can afford is a donation of $10, it will go a long way in helping those affected by this earthquake.
