help haiti

The devastation at Haiti just continues to boggle the mind. I have been following Dr. Sanjay Gupta's Twitter feed and he is seriously a hero in my eyes. He's in Haiti to report for CNN but being a neurosurgeon, he has also been helping the injured Haitians. In fact, he stayed at the field hospital last night, turning his crew into a "crack med team" to continue helping survivors, when every other doctor and nurse was pulled out due to security concerns. I have so much respect for him. His latest Twitter feed reads: "So sorry to not anchor my show today. couldn't break away from the field hospital. if #cnn doesn't fire me, promise to do the show tomorrow."

If you would like to make a donation, a quick and easy to way to do it is to text HAITI to 90999. $10 will be donated to the Red Cross and will just be charged to your phone bill. I did that today and it was amazingly easy. You can also make a donation to the Red Cross through iTunes.

T-shirt company Kid Dangerous has also created a Help Haiti shirt, which you can pre-order from their online store for $35. Proceeds from these sales will benefit One Dome at a Time, which is helping provide immediate relief and longterm rebuilding to the victims of the Haiti earthquake. Every little bit helps.
