Probably everyone knows this by now, but you can donate $10 via the American Red Cross to help earthquake victims by texting "HAITI" to 90999. The cost will be added to your phone bill (you pay that much in taxes and fees every month anyway).

Or if you want to give more than $10 or don't like texting, you can donate directly to the Red Cross relief efforts at their website by clicking on the button for the International Response Fund:

Don't give money to Haiti; has nothing to do with insane conservatives.

Without getting into a prolonged political or economic debate, as the article linked above suggests, just throwing money at an issue certainly isn't always (or even usually) the solution.

But when the issue involves immediate, short-term needs like food and emergency medical supplies (which the Red Cross has already experienced shortages of), then money absolutely helps.

And if, like the author of the article, you are concerned about restricted donations, then just give to the International Response Fund as described above without specifying that the donation is for Haiti. Then if more than enough money eventually comes in, you can rest assured that your donation will still go to help those in need elsewhere in the world.
