Haiti Relief Efforts

Yes, this is wildly off-topic. And you're probably sick of seeing it.

- Text "haiti" to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross for earthquake relief efforts.

- If you're on the fence about this, don't be. Hundreds of thousands in Haiti are seriously injured or dead. It's just $10. It'll go on your next cell phone bill, so you have a month to figure out how to afford it.

- Do NOT send packages. Just send money.

- There are two hoaxes floating around on Twitter. One is that American Airlines is flying docs and nurses to Haiti for free. The other is that UPS is giving free shipping to Haiti tomorrow. Neither are true. The main airport in Haiti has been shut down for lack of space and fuel.

-Let's not allow this to be another Katrina. It's bad enough already, as Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere.

About Me

New York, New York, United States
Tired. Caffeinated. Quietly evil.

I'm a theatre technician, living and working in NYC. Also an aspiring costumer, makeup artist, playwright and dilettante.
I like to rant about things, I swear like a person who swears a lot, and I work too much. Other than that, my time is spent at home with the puppy or in Chelsea bars with friends and co-workers.
