CNN has a great resources for finding legitimate organizations that are specifically helping Haiti. Currently, the most pressing need is monetary donations. There are a variety of ways you can make donations, including using your debit / credit card or sending text messages to aid organizations.

This CNN site has information about aid organizations, donations, volunteering, and more.

You can text donations for Haiti relief from your cell phone. In addition to your donation amount, standard text messaging fees will apply.

Red Cross: Text HAITI to 90999 ($10 donation)
Yéle Haiti: Text YELE to 501501 ($5 donation) <See our post about Yéle Haiti here>
United Way: Text HAITI to 864833 ($5 donation)
Intl Medical Corps: Text HAITI to 85944 ($10 donation)

In the coming days and weeks, aid organizations will need donations of food and other basic necessities. I will post more information about good deals on non-perishable items at the stores this week as well as places in the SouthCoast where you can drop these items off. If you have information to share, please leave a comment or send an email to massmamas AT yahoo DOT com.
