Helping Haiti

The recent devastating earthquakes in Haiti have brought many of us to tears, and in a certain way, have had a paralyzing effect. We've been hesitant to post here at Recycled Minds, as little else seems quite as important or pressing as the events in the small and troubled island nation. We've decided to collect some trusted and effective organizations and share them with our readers. Please share what you can...

I personally know some of the people that work in and with this organization - they have been caring for Haitian orphans since 2003. Visit them here:

Partners in Health
I've had the pleasure to see founder Paul Farmer speak a number of times, and have always been awed by the work they do around the world - and they started their work in Haiti. Visit them here:

Some other organizations that are working on the ground and can put your donations to good use. Again, please consider helping if you can!

Yele - Donate $5 to Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund by texting "Yele" to 501501 (the $5 will be charged to your cell phone bill) or by visiting

Lambi Fund - Lambi Fund plans for RECOVERY: rebuild grain mills, sugar cane mills, and other economic development community enterprises lost in the earthquake. These buildings are the centers of communities' economic livelihoods.
Visit them here:

Fonkoze - Earthquake Relief and Rehabilitation Fund Help Fonkoze respond to the urgent needs created by this tragedy and urge others to respond! Visit them here:
