Help for Haiti
Posted by Jesse Lee on January 13, 2010 at 09:53 AM EST
The President has been receiving updates on the urgent situation in Haiti late into last night and this morning, and top members of his team have been convening to formulate the government response.
You can also help immediately by donating to the Red Cross to assist the relief effort. Contribute online here, or donate $10 to be charged to your cell phone bill by texting "HAITI" to "90999."
Families of Americans living in Haiti are encouraged to contact the State Department at 888-407-4747.
Remember that even while your family may be encountering some financial hardships right now that you have a family, a home and dinner... A small donation of $10 can help insure that those affected by this catastrophic earthquake have the same!
