Haiti Earthquake: How Kids Can Help

On Tuesday, January 12, 2010, the island-country of Haiti, which is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, was rocked by a major earthquake that measured 7.3 on the Richter Scale. With tens of thousands of people dead and millions more injured and homeless, kids around the world are wondering what they can do to help.


 


10 Ways You Can Donate To Haitian Earthquake Victims

According to The Centre For International Disaster the best way to help people in Haiti is by donating money instead of supplies. Here’s a list of organizations you can donate to, who will use your money to help Haiti:

  1. The Red Cross: Text "HAITI" to the number 90999 to donate $10, which will be added to your next cellphone bill. You can also donate online through the Red Cross website.
  2. Doctors Without Borders: Hospitals in Haiti are badly damaged and overwhelmed. To help medical aid workers, donate through the Doctors Without Borders website.
  3. CARE: This international aid group has already sent 133 staff members to Haiti, and it will be distributing food. You can ask your parents if they want to donate your family’s Delta Air Lines SkyMiles to fly CARE aid workers to Haiti or give money for relief funds through its website.
  4. Partners In Health: Louise Ivers, clinical director for Haiti for Partners In Health, says, "Port-au-Prince is devastated, lot of deaths. SOS. SOS ... Please help us." You can donate to support field hospitals on Partners in Health's website.
  5. World Vision: World Vision has taken 18 tons of supplies, including blankets, tarps and water containers to Haiti. Show your support by donating through World Vision’s website.
  6. UNICEF: The UNICEF representative in Haiti, Guido Cornale, says that the Haitian earthquake is one of the worst he's seen in his life. To help children in Haiti, donate through UNICEF's website.
  7. Wyclef Jean’s Yele Foundation: Haitian-American rapper Wyclef Jean's foundation to rebuild Haiti, Yéle, is accepting text-message donations. Text "Yele" to 501501 to donate $5, which will be added to your next phone bill. You can also donate through the Yéle Foundation's website.
  8. International Relief And Development (IRD): IRD will supply water, sanitation kits, medicine, hygiene kits and shelter materials. You can donate to IRD on its website.
  9. Oxfam: 200 volunteers stationed in Haiti are providing clean water, shelter and sanitation through donations on Oxfam's website.
  10. The Salvation Army: The Salvation Army is sending 285,120 boxed meals of rice, soy and vitamins to Haiti, which you can help support by making a donation through the Salvation Army’s website.

It's called Left Behind. There is Left Behind the kids and Left Behind (adults). Left Behind the kids is the story of four teenagers. Left Behind is the story of adults. I read the whole fifty book kids series twice. I'm in the middle of reading the sixteen book adult series. The kids series is more for teens and teens. As for the adult series, twe######d teens can probably read it, but you can decide. The adult series is more graphic, but still good nonetheless. Sorry for doing this super long post. Bye! Ohhhh I love that series! Anyways,  I should say this is how I imagined the Apocalypse, the End of Days, Armeggedon.
