Haiti

As you no doubt know by now, a massive earthquake has devastated Haiti - with tens of thousands feared dead.
Over 90 percent of victims die during the first 4 days of disasters such as these, a lot of them largely due to lack of basic resources such as clinics and medical supplies.
There are ways you can help! The Red Cross, for example, has a system where cell users can text "Haiti" to the number 90999. The text message yields a $10 donation to the Red Cross (charged to your phone bill).

I don't have facebook, so I can't put this on my status or send a message to everyone.

Sorry I had to do it here, but I didn't know what else to do beside a group e-mail... I hope you can help in this disaster guys!
:)
