Haiti

It’s been awhile since this website has been updated, I know, but right now the most exigent (thank you, GRE studying) matter is the situation in Haiti.  Already the most underdeveloped country in the Western Hemisphere, the recent earthquake and its aftermath has plunged the island into deeper devastation.  There has been a remarkable outpouring of love towards the victims and thankfully, contributing to the relief efforts is just a click away.  In disasters such as these, it seems the most effective and efficient way to contribute is donating directly to relief effort organizations.  Here are a few:

Donations support the American Red Cross in sending relief supplies, mobilizing relief workers and providing financial resources and recovery.

Google has a straightforward and comprehensive site up with excellent resources (news, organizations, interactive media).

100% of your donation will be used to save children's lives in UNICEF's relief work in Haiti.
