Helping Haiti

The reports out of Haiti are devastating. As the world scrambles to funnel resources, aide and money into the region, we wanted to make sure that our community knew how they can get involved today to help with the relief efforts. Below are some links that will take you to organizations that are helping to make a difference on the ground — please do everything that you can to spread the word.

You can also use your mobile device to donate – here are two options:

  • Text “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill) or you can visit Yele Haiti and click Donate.
  • You can also text “HAITI” to “90999” and $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross, charged to your cell phone bill.

Wyclef Jean has been a longtime advocate for Haiti. Since the earthquake hit, he’s been tirelessly working on raising money and donations to help aid disaster relief. His Ning Network, ClefZone, launches today and is a great resource for getting involved and learning more.

If you want to connect to others who are working to aid relief efforts in Haiti, make sure to check out these KnowYour Haiti Relief, Hands Across Haiti and Radio Telel Ginen.

Peter Slutsky, Ning’s Manager of Strategic Relations, just donated to the Red Cross.

    Hello,
    I live in Belgium (Europe), and many Organizations are collecting as much money as they can for Haiti.
    Our Government is sending much supplies,medicines, food and other things they need. It is very sad what is happening in Haiti. My Prayers are with them.

    Hi Lisa,

    There isn’t a way to add this to every Ning Network, but what could be a good option is sending out a broadcast message (if you are a Network Creator) or a private message (if you are a member), letting people know about ways they can get involved.
