Help. Please.

Like many of you, one of my first thoughts when I heard about the earthquake in Haiti was "What can I do?"  I am just heartbroken about this, as I know the world is, and am eager to do what I can.  I know there are tons of ways to give -- Red Cross, Compassion, etc.  If you're looking for an organization that gives 100% of its proceeds to the cause (not saying the others I mentioned don't because I don't know), visit http://www.yele.org/.  Or you can just text "YELE" to 501501 to donate $5 (this will be billed to your phone bill).  Please just give what you can.  They need us.

Edited to Add:  You may have noticed that I removed the YELE button from the blog.  I specifically chose this organization to go through because it belongs to Wyclef Jean, who we all know, is from Haiti. The organization prides itself on giving 100% of its proceeds to the cause.  You probably know that an article came out this weekend questioning YELE's accounting practices.  Yikes!  So I can't fully "endorse" YELE until I know they're clean. :)  Like I said before, it never meant I wasn't for other organizations like Red Cross -- in fact, I gave through Red Cross, too, on behalf of my sorority.  There are plenty organizations to choose from out there, and most of their financial practices have been in the news at one point or another, including Red Cross.  As long as we give, guys, I am confident that the victims in Haiti and other causes, in the end, benefit from our efforts.
