Haiti – Good Organizations That Need Your Donations

Posted January 15th, 2010 by ingrid

These are two organizations that I support anyway and trust to use my money wisely.

Doctors Without Borders/MSF Follow on Twitter: twitter.com/MSF_USA

Partners in Health have been on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years so I think it’s definitely worth getting involved with their Stand With Haiti campaign – give money and spread the word! Follow on Twitter: twitter.com/PIH_org

I’m also really happy to see people using technology for good and sending so much money via cell phones. The charges are added to your phone bill so it’s safe and easy.

To donate to the Red Cross: Text HAITI to 90999 ($10 donation). Follow on Twitter: twitter.com/redcross

To donate to YĆ©le Haiti: Text YELE to 501501 ($5 donation). Follow on Twitter: twitter.com/yelehaiti

UPDATE: The Washington Post have published an article showing that Yele Haiti are under financial scrutiny so you may want to stick with the Red Cross, MSF and Partners In Health.

The Huffington Post has also posted a list of ways to help.

Ushahidi are crowdsourcing information here.

Global Voices are collating reports here.

MediaShift have lots of good links for news and donating here.
