Holy cow, Westlaw is letting us donate points now too! $5 for every $250 points.

I just donated 1,750 points. That comes out to $35 to the Red Cross, added to what I've already donated.


You are awesome! Putting that in right now.

This morning I texted "HAITI" to 90999. I think that counts for $10.

Please help if you can, people. This may go down as one of the worst natural disasters ever.

The Westlaw points are awesome and so painless to donate. I just donated 1,000 points.

LOS ANGELES — Leonardo DiCaprio has become the latest star to back the Haiti earthquake relief effort, donating one million dollars to help the shattered country, a statement said Thursday.

DiCaprio's donation was made to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush House have been named as special coordinators of aid to Haiti by President Barack Obama.

Every dollar counts, but it's nice to see those with deeper pockets stepping up too...!

Wow, that is awesome. I wish we could do that.

If all goes well, I'll be doing TPS training to work with Haitian immigrants tomorrow.

I've seen a lot of the outpouring of support firsthand- the other day I was in touch with a group of doctors wanting to go down and help out. If I had a skill like that to offer, I'd like to go, too, but I did donate $20 to the red cross.

As most probably know, the Hope for Haiti Telethon is on now ... on pretty much every channel.

is it me, or is this the most effective instance of fund-raising using the internet in the history of post-calamity fund-raising?

I don't recall this level of "reach" for katrina.. this is kind of mindblowingly comprehensive..

I would be more willing to donate if the country were not corrupt from the bottom up. I got screwed by that telethon for 9/11, now I am very suspect of giving money to any disaster, particularly one outside of the United States.
