The American Red Cross is taking donations at 90999 (text the word “HAITI” and an automatic $10 donation is made), and you can support the foundation of musician (and Haiti-born) Wyclef Jean by texting the word “Yele” to the number 501501. (Texting takes barely a minute of your time and it is a great way to get involved!)

But beware - there are a bunch of scams surfacing in regards to the disaster and donation efforts! For legit Twitter news regarding Haiti, follow @Wyclef, @YeleHaiti,@CNNBrk and finally @HaitiGoodNews, which tweets the names of people who have been reported safe so family and friends can be aware and to spread hope to others.

Our hearts go out to the victims of the earthquake and their families, and all the people of Haiti during this difficult time.
