It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little.
-Sydney Smith, writer and clergyman (1771-1845)

Yele is an organization founded by Haitian musician and activist Wyclef Jean and all donations will go directly to where there is the most need. Thanks to Ilene for this information and the quote. Or text YELE to 501 501 to donate $5 via your cellphone

Text HAITI to 90999 and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.

Here is a list of charitable organizations active in Haiti.

Thinking of the heartbreaking tragedy in Haiti and holding my loves close.


  1. That is great information, thanks for passing it along.

  2. Thanks for getting that information out there. They couldn't make it any easier to donate.

  3. it's so heartbreaking to watch the coverage on Haiti. Thanks for reminding that doing a little something like sending a text can make a difference.

  4. It scares me to death, living as we do, in "earthquake country". Those poor people. My God.

  5. You're a good egg... my heart is broken too. :(
