Magnitude 7.0 Erthquake Strikes Outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti & Wyclef Jean On How You Can Help – Text YELE to 501 501



Filed under : Entertainment

Please keep the nation of Haiti in your thoughts & prayers…

According to CNN news reports, night fell a few hours after the 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Tuesday, reducing buildings as grand as the National Palace to rubble and knocking down phone and power lines.

The wounded, white with dust, filled the streets. Women clutched their babies, desperate to find help. Others stretched their arms skyward, calling out Jesus‘ name.

To all our readers, I urge you to please identify any one way you can help Haiti in the coming days. International artist, Wyclef Jean, tweeted about one way of assisting which is to text “Yele” to 501501 to donate $5 to YELE HAITI. This money will help with relief efforts. The $5 gets added to your next phone bill. If not, then please join in prayer, spreading information, or whatever you can…just help!

The American Red Cross also is accepting donations as they have already pledged an initial $200,000 toward relief efforts. They are releasing all their supplies located in a Panama warehouse, from kitchen and cooking sets to mosquito nets. They expect to see immediate needs for food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support.
