**UPDATE: One of the best ways to help aid Haiti is by donating to Wyclef Jean’s Yele Foundation. Other organizations have administration fees (which are around 30% or more). Wyclef is Haitian and does all he can to make the country better (his efforts are year round). So be sure to give to his organization FIRST, then you can give to the others.  yele.org Unlike most of the other non-profits 100% of the donation you give to YELE will go to the relief efforts.**
Text YELE to 501501 to donate $5 to the relief effort. Good people give to those in need, as do gentlemen especially Urban Gentlemen. Contributing $5 is literally pennies to give in comparison to the big impact you will make with the donation. Please help out this great country in their time of need.

(be sure to send atleast $20 (4 text) to Wyclef’s Yele Haiti Foundation).
