Give Ten Bucks to Haiti!

This isn't just the standard disaster. This is bad.

You can spare ten dollars to help the folks in Haiti. If you procrastinate your way out of helping today, you will no longer be entitled to think of yourself as a "good person". You lose that title, for lack of a lousy $10. So please do it right this instant. Just text "HAITI" to "90999" to donate $10 automatically to the Red Cross via your cell phone bill.

If you'd like to give more (because, unless you're destitute, a mere $10 won't get you off the hook), please donate to
Save the Children (which gets a four star rating on or Doctors Without Borders (also four stars). I figure they can use larger donations more efficiently than the Red Cross (which gets three stars), where everyone sends money. But don't delay. And don't forget to ask to be opted out of mailings and third party access to your contact information.
