Your Guide to Helping Haiti’s Earthquake Victims

January 14, 2010

Hollywood stars, from Angelina to Brad, are not the only ones who are reaching out to help Haiti in the wake of the devastating earthquake. My Facebook pages are  filled with comments of friends who want to help.

But how?

For one thing, experts say giving cash, not clothing or canned goods, is the most effective way of reaching out. I know people  who want to give to my birthplace of Malawi want to be sure their donations go to the right place.  Unfortunately, in the case of Malawi and Haiti,  you do have to be aware of scams. The following are legit ways to help.

Donate Via Texting

  • If you want to give via text mail. Haitian-born hip hopper, Wyclef Jean is heading up efforts to prompt donors to text in donations of $5 . Your contribution is welcome, via any phone carrier service. At last count he has raised $400,000.  The American Red Cross is calling for $10 donations. As we speak the RC has raised two mil.

Donate Via Web site

  • Wyclef’s charity, also offers an option to donate online.
  • Half of those affected are children. You can donate to UNICEF’s Web site  here.

Donate Via Telephone

  • Call in you donation to the Red Cross at 1 800 HELP NOW.
  • 1 800 FOR KIDS is UNICEF’s line. The UN is still very much on the job in spite of being hit hard in Haiti.

Donate Via Mail

  • For the Red Cross, address your donations to:

World Hope International (WHI) is mobilizing its 60-strong Haitian staff and community volunteers to respond with food, safe water, cooking fuel and other basic supplies as available. As the work of first responders ebb, WHI will expand its response by mobilizing U.S. volunteers to assist the Haitian staff and communities in clean-up and rebuilding. WHI responds to natural disasters where it has the national staff and capacity (as it does in Haiti) to do so effectively. WHI first began in Haiti in 1996 and presently implements a large-scale HIV/AIDS program funded by USAID.
