Bloggers Day of Action for Haiti

Jeanine of Aphro Chic organized Bloggers Day of Action for Haiti today and I decided to participate. On Jan. 12, 2010 at 5:14 p.m. EST, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake hit the country of Haiti. Haiti, according to 2008 UN estimates, has a population of about 9.8 million. The devastation of the earthquake that hit the country, a part of Hispanola along with the Dominican Republic, has ruptured the lives of the Haitian people.

I’m writing this post to tell you that you can make a difference. Musician Wyclef Jean’s foundation, Yele, an organization to help poverty and to uplift his origin country of Haiti is now putting together a donation program to provide relief through this great disaster. There are plenty of ways to donate. One of the most popular right now is the text to donate program set up by the Red Cross. You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti. Please understand that this disaster has tormented an entire nation and has taken the lives, homes, and security of thousands. Here’s a list of resources were you can help. I know many of you are bloggers, just take some time out to blog for Haiti. Spread awareness and show that you care.
