How You Can Help Haiti

As coverage of the Haiti earthquake and its aftermath continues to expand, many people in our community are asking how they can help by donating to charities involved with relief efforts. If you would like to give money to these relief activities, we have compiled a list of international organizations that have mobilized relief efforts.

Before donating, you may find it helpful to read this NPR article about deciding on where to donate your money.

Online Donations

Further Research
