NPR's List of Resources for Haiti


Click on the logo above.

This is a place to get started.  NPR isn't endorsing these charities and urges you to do your own research.  In fact, a great site to check out is Charity Navigator, since it shows the percentage of funds that go to overhead vs. aid.  Just so you can go in with your eyes open.

Text donations:

  • American Red Cross (donation link): Text "HAITI" to 90999 and $10 will be added to your phone bill.
  • Yele Haiti (donation link): Wyclef Jean's organization.  Text "YELE" to 501501 to donate $5
