Thoughts and Prayers with My Haitian brothers and sisters

Sending positive energy to Haiti right now in this devastating time. You can help simply by texting Yele to 501501 to donate $5. You can also visit if you would like to donate more. I recommend Yele because 100% of the donations go to relief efforts as opposed to some of the larger organizations where some percentage of the money usually goes towards overhead/administration.

Trini ppl with Digicel phones can text "help" to 5151 to donate $3 to the cause. You can also donate to the Red Cross via their Republic Bank Account # 180 482 517 101.

I would also recommend donating to Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders), just because they have been excellent in this crisis already and are already on the ground. I think medical care is one of the highest priorities on the needs list right now given the situation (several thousand casualties, several thousand injured and many major hospitals structurally unsound right now) but most ppl will be focussed, as we tend to in these types of situations, on food, clothes and drinking water. You can donate to Doctors without Borders at

Other organizations that you can donate money, food, clothes and other essentials to can be found at:

Most importantly, your prayers and positive energy are needed at this time.
