Wear Red For Haiti (on January 19)

I will be pasting here the article written (as well as the image)for the Facebook event called Wear Red For Haiti. Since its birth a few days ago, the total number of attendees number to 102,033.


Show your support for the victims of the earthquake disaster in Haiti by wearing red on January 19. We're all one people and we all share this world, and we must stand up for one another when others begin to fall apart.

Everyone who joins this group, if you would invite all of your friends and tell them to do the same with theirs. If we work together then we can show our strong support for those who have been affected by this unprecedented tragedy.

IF YOU HAVE A TWITTER, TWEET THE LINK TO THIS EVENT SO THAT ALL OF YOUR FOLLOWERS WHO HAVE A FACEBOOK WILL BE AWARE OF IT! TELL THEM TO CONTINUE TWEETING IT AS WELL!

If you are interested in donating money to the victims, you can do so in several different ways:
1. Text "YELE" to 501501 and donate $5 to an organization known as Yele Haiti that is supporting the relief efforts.
2. Text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross which is also aiding in the efforts.
3. Obviously if you are aware of any charities sending money to the victims, these would work as well.

Here is a long list of organizations participating in Haiti as of right now, so if you have the money to spare, please give what you can to help these people. http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/01/13/haiti.earthquake.how.to.help/index.html?hpt=T2

UPDATE: Actor Ben Stiller has just announced that ALL donations given through his charity StillerStrong (http://www.stillerstrong.org/) will go directly toward the disaster relief in Haiti. This is just another excellent way to show your support for the Haitian people.

IMPORTANT: If you are searching for relatives or friends who may have been in Haiti at the time of the earthquake, go to http://www.familylinks.icrc.org/WFL_HTI.NSF/DocIndex/locate_eng?opendocument. It is an excellent site that hopefully will reunite you with anyone that may be missing.
