    HOW TO DONATE

    British people wishing to help the victims of the Haiti earthquake are being advised by the UK government to donate money to the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal.

    Donors can call the DEC's dedicated Haiti Earthquake appeal line which is open 24 hours a day on 0370 6060 900, or go to the website and follow the simple instructions.

    Donations can also be sent to the DEC by post, with a cheque made payable to DEC Haiti Earthquake and addressed to DEC Haiti Earthquake, PO Box 999, London, EC3A 3AA.

    Donations can also be made on the High Street, by calling into any bank or post office and quoting Freepay 1449, or at branches of any of the DEC's member charities. The DEC is composed of 13 major UK aid agencies: Action Aid, British Red Cross, CAFOD, Care International UK, Christian Aid, Concern Worldwide, Help the Aged, Islamic Relief, Merlin, Oxfam, Save the Children, Tearfund and World Vision.

    The International Committee of the Red Cross also has its own appeal, with donors able to give online by going to the ICRC's website and selecting HAITI from the drop-down list of the ICRC programmes needing support. Donations can be made in four different currencies: pounds, dollars, euros or Swiss francs.

    The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies , which has a co-ordinating role, has an online appeal page for Haiti.

    Action Against Hunger is also appealing online for donations to fund the emergency team it has sent out to bolster its 100 field workers in Haiti, who have been running programmes there since 1985.

    In the US, people can donate $10 to the American Red Cross's work in Haiti by texting ?Haiti? to 90999 on their cellphone, with the cost charged to their cellphone bill. They can also donate on its website.

    Alternatively they can text ?Yele? to 501501 and a donation of $5 will be given automatically to Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti foundation to help with relief efforts, or donate on Yele's website.

    Details of other way to donate to Haiti from Britain and abroad, including through Medecins Sans Frontieres and the World Food Programme, can be found here.

    A DEC spokesman said that giving money was the best way to help, so that supplies can be purchased as close as possible to the disaster area and sent straight to those in need. The DEC aims to buy supplies in areas of Haiti which are not affected by the disaster, in order to help sustain the local economy. If that proves impossible, aid agencies will source supplies from the Dominican Republic and then the US.

    Good job HaRRo. I was just thinking about helping out last night. Now I know where to donate.

    Good post Harro. I was actually reading yesterday where there are alot of scammers out there taking advantage of this. Hope none of our BHW members are in on that. These people need alot of help. Haiti has been ravaged by floods, hurricanes and political turmoil over the past couple of decades and then they get hit by another tragedy.

    I hope people will help the people of this country in any way they can; even prayers. And, I hope the scammers out there realize they are taking money away from people who really need it.

    Thank you for doing this!

    If everyone worldwide capable of giving just a dollar did so, the help would be immense.

    Harro, Thanks for your great generosity and everyone that responded. I'm from Haiti and I have family there now. My sister was there in vacation, thanks god she's OK. I haven't been to Haiti in 22 years, but I'm going there Saturday to help with the rescue effort. So many people have died. Please remember them in your prayers.

    I donated for IMC.


    International Medical Corps is assembling a team of first responders and resources to provide lifesaving medical care and other emergency services to survivors of the earthquake. The IMC previously helped recovery efforts after September 2009's earthquake in Sumatra, Indonesia, and the massive 2005 earthquake in Pakistan. Donate to the International Medical Corps through their 24-hour hotline at 800-481-4462

    http://www.imcworldwide.org/

    My website members have donated more than 1k in 3 days feel made a difference too.. Feels good everyone should contribute..No matter how big or small your contributions are.


    1 million haitians need medical supplies :( even food can be provided, the problem will be treating the wounded. Let god give them the strength.
    Awesome Harro

    Good Work

    If everyone just send 10$ each from this forum, they should have a million $ to Haiti. I remember the Tsunami, where many people died. And it´s very painful to see friends, relatives, parents, sis and bro´s die in those catastrofe areas.

    Wish i was Warren Buffet or something, so i could donate a billion.
