Help for Haiti
January 20, 2010
Dear Campus Community,
After a week of searching for survivors in the aftermath of a magnitude-7 earthquake, Haiti suffered a magnitude-6.1 aftershock this morning.
As news accounts have shown, it was already difficult getting care and basic resources to victims. Today’s aftershock may further hinder aid efforts.
It’s impossible to watch the tragedy unfold without wanting to reach out to Haiti. As much as we may want to lend our own hands to search-and-rescue efforts – as presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton have said – the best way to help is by donating money.
If you are moved to help and don’t know how, please consider contributing to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. A hundred percent of the money donated to the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund will be dedicated to Haiti’s short- and long-term needs.
To make a donation, go to http://clintonbushhaitifund.org.
Donations can also be made by texting the word "QUAKE" to 20222, which will charge $10 to the user's cell phone bill.
Our hearts go out to the victims and their families and I know that any support you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
