Help Haiti.

Details are coming out from Haiti as the day begins, but yet again that small nation has been beset with injury so disproportionate to its size and wealth. An earthquake of a 7 on the Richter scale struck the island yesterday.

The non-profit Network For Good lists several NGOs to which one can contribute to help the survivors. Some of them:

  • AmeriCares
  • Doctors without Borders
  • Mercy Corps
  • Oxfam America
  • Partners in Health
  • Save the Children
Or, use your cellphone to text HAITI to the number 90999. Doing so will automatically donate $10 to the Red Cross. The charge will be added on to your next bill. UPDATE: As of Saturday, 16 January, $10 million had been raised from this method alone. Some of the phone carriers were pledging to immediately send the funds rather than waiting until customers had paid their bills.

Life is not only about the beer.
