    Help raise donations for Haiti relief!

    TEXT: Haiti to 90999 on your cell phone . When you send the text, you will get a reply back that asks you if you will accept. Then text back "yes". $10.00 will be deducted from your cell phone acct to be donated to the RedCross International Fund.

    Can you IMAGINE how much we could all raise???

    Thanks for your help!

    I can't take all of the credit. Wayne Luke posted this on FB and I ran with it. :)
    But thanks!

    This is definitely reliable. I donated myself before I posted this. :)

    I think GoDaddy donated 500k USD too.

    And Briton in the UK donated 2million GBP, Not sure if that's true but its said it on my ISP homepage so i assume it is.

    I've also made my donation using Red Cross. Any amount is helpful for the effort over there.

    I donated $25 and David Blaine took a picture with me, gave me two autographs, and did a magic trick for me. Shit scared me, but it was the best $25 I have spent.

    There are also several relief efforts on Facebook.

    If you play games such as FarmVille, PetVille, YoVille - the makers of these games, Zynga (Zynga.org - Welcome) have set up a relief fund for Haiti. They've raised quite a bit of $ already. It's quite impressive.

    I put a widget on our site for: Doctors without Borders

    You guys can also put the widget on your sites if you like. I just chose them b/c I knew where exactly it was going.

    I put out $100.

    I donated to Doctors Without Borders, and will be rounding up medical supplies for Give Supplies . Haiti is going to be needing help for a long, long time, so if you can't help out financially now, don't forget about it down the road.
