BCK interrupts your daily dose of celebrity kids’ news to bring you this devastating truth: Haiti is in need of your help now! Thousands are dead and thousands will be pronounced dead in the coming days. Please, let us pull together to help those in Haiti who were hit by a 7.0 earthquake-yes, a 7.0 earthquake.
An estimated 3 million people are in need of your help. Here is how you can help courtesy of USA Today:
There are many ways to lend a hand, but be warned, many aid sites have been overloaded. Be patient!
* Donate to Yele, an organization set up by musician Wyclef Jean – a native Haitian(pictured with his daughter above). The fastest way to donate may be by text. Text Yele to 501 501 to donate $5.
* You can make a donation through the American Red Cross’ International Response Fund. Text “Haiti” to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief efforts.
* Mercy Corps has a way for you to donate your money straight to their efforts in Haiti, and Unicef also has a donation site set up.
* The United Nations World Food Program has teams “already on the scene, mobilizing emergency food assistance to families.” To support these efforts, you can make an emergency donation today.
* Operation Blessing International also has disaster relief teams on the way. A donation of $50 or more will bring emergency food, water, medicine and more to the quake victims.
Americans who need information about family members in Haiti have been asked to call (888) 407-4747, a line set up by the State Department.
BCK Says: Lots of beautiful kids like Angelina Jean, Wyclef’s daughter, need your help so please help!
