News of the terrible earthquake in Haiti has been spread all over the media. Up to 3 million people have been affected by this and the death toll is estimated to be inbetween 100,000 and 500,000. The capital city is in ruins and the surrounding areas have all been badly affected as well. Haitians and relief workers are working around the clock to bring order back to their country, but in an already poverty-stricken area, this is next to impossible.

As a vodouisant, I feel helpless. Powerless. I've always wanted to visit the country where my religion was born in fire, blood, and revolution, but I've never been able to. I desperately want to help those who are suffering, but the only thing I am able to do is donate what little extra money I have. If any of you are of the means to make any type of donation, please- do so. Prayers are wonderful, but they are just not enough.

You can text “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10.00 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti. The donation will be charged to your cell phone and show up on your next bill. Please, please, please help if you can.

You can also text YELE to 501501. This is a $5.00 donation and I believe it's Wyclef Jean's organization.

This is a list of reportedly reputable organizations to donate to.

Spread this far and wide.

Thank you.
