Haitian Relief Effort

By now, we all have heard about the horrific earthquake in Haiti. Estimates put the possible dead as high as 150,000 people. Bodies are being stacked in the street, being picked up by bulldozers, placed in dumpsters, and carted away to mass graves.

Food is scarce. Water is scarce. The survivors need as much help and aid as they can get.

Former President Bill Clinton has said that the best thing most Americans can do to help is to write a check and donate money. That's what is needed for the relief effort.

In this day and age, the easiest way to do this is to take out your cell phone. Text the word "Haiti" to 90999. $10 will be added to your phone bill, and that money will go to the Red Cross to be used in the Haitian Relief effort.

Please do your best to help.
