Something Different

Ang says "Let's help Haiti". She'll take care of the rest of site hosting for this month, and encourages HASA visitors to give to the charity/relief organization of their choice. Below is a list of links to sites where donations can be made. Some links go to pages the aggregate other links, while some go directly to organizations. There is also a link to a site where you can verify the reputation of these organizations. Thank you!
  • - page of relief organizations. Many different organizations, some religious, some secular, with a lot of options. All are reputable.

  • Los Angeles Times page of organizations

  • Clinton Foundation Haiti page - has a list of organizations accepting donations. Bill is the UN special envoy for Haiti.

  • Global Giving - has some local Haitian organizations for those who don't want to give to the big anonymous organizations.

  • Doctors Without Borders - is reputable and already working in Haiti.

  • Partners in Health - same as DWB. Has been in Haiti 20 years.

  • ShelterBox - this organization packs and delivers boxes filled with essential relief gear.

  • Charity Navigator - site for checking out the reputability of an organization. Not just the Haitian relief effort.

  • Cash is needed most of all to purchase immediate supplies: food, water, portable shelter, medical supplies.
