Help the Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts

Relief efforts are building in response to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti yesterday. Centered 10 miles from the capital Port Au Prince, it was the worst earthquake to hit the region in more than 200 years and the devastation is enormous—thousands of structures have been destroyed, including hospitals and countless homes—people are trapped in the rubble, and we don’t even know the full extent of the damage.
