The reports about the earthquake in Haiti are heart rending. Having lived through a natural disaster myself, albeit on the fringes, I have an inkling of what it can be like. They have it far worse, however since they didn't have a good infrastructure to begin with. The White House blog discusses the US response and suggests making a donation to the Red Cross if you want to help. If you have your cell phone on you you can text "HAITI" to 90999 and a $10.00 donation will be charged to your bill. Makes it quick and easy- you don't have to go hunting for a credit card or anything.
