Haitian earthquake relief

NPR is reporting that the American Red Cross is running out of supplies in Haiti, the site of a devastating earthquake yesterday that may have killed thousands and left hundreds of thousands in desperate straits.

The Red Cross has pledged a million dollars to the relief effort. To donate to the Red Cross, go to the organization's web site. You can also quickly donate $10 to the agency by texting "HAITI" to 90999. The program is sponsored by the US State Department and the charge goes onto your cell phone bill.

The New York Times has a list of reputable organizations that you can donate too here.
