After writing a post called Depraved Indifference, which was in essence about helping those who cannot help themselves, I would be remiss not to urge everyone to give whatever they can to assist Haiti in it's time of need. There are reportedly hundreds of thousand killed by the earthquake there, and what infrastructure Haiti had was mostly destroyed. Here is a link to where you can send donations to Haiti. They badly need our help.
Even before the earthquake, Haiti was the poorest country in the western hemisphere. The GDP of Haiti comes out to $2 per Haitian per day. That level of poverty is something we can barely comprehend here. I've also heard there are an estimated 45,000 Americans in Haiti.
Every little bit helps, and now is the time to give.
