Haitian Prayers, Thoughts, Hopes

I have some friends with family stilling  missing.  Get involved if you can.

I’ve also heard you can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts.  It will be added to your cell phone bill. NYT confirms this:

Anyone with a mobile phone and an account with a major wireless carrier can text the phrase “Haiti” to the number 90999 and donate $10 to the Red Cross. That amount is charged to the donor’s cellphone bill. The texted donations are being handled by a company called mGive, which started the campaign in a joint effort with the State Department and the Red Cross late Tuesday night.

$2 million raised so far!

A friend of mine roomed with a Haitian foreign exchange student his freshman year.  Nicest, albeit curiously odd fellow you’d ever meet.  He was skinny as a rail and we once caught him drinking Slim Fast and we had to explain to him it was for weight loss.  He thought it was what you drank if you were of slim build. Oh, Berman.
