Earthquake in Haiti

Dear Friend:

According to a Twitter message we received from the U.S. State Department this morning, the speed with which you can send aid to help the people of Haiti is truly breathtaking. We hope that you will join us in responding today:

Simply text “HAITI” to “90999” and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.

Or, if you prefer more traditional methods (and can make a larger contribution) we suggest you go online and donate to any of the organizations listed below.

Mercy Corps:    https://donate.mercycorps.org/donation.htm?DonorIntent=Haiti+Earthquake
Partners in Health:     www.pih.org/inforesources/news/Haiti_Earthquake.html
Doctors Without Borders: www.doctorswithoutborders.org

If you’re interested in learning more about the human dimensions of this disaster and what governments and aid agencies are doing to respond, we recommend reading Josh String’s Hemispheric Brief blog.

With thanks and hopes for Haiti’s recovery,

Your friends at Cuba Central
