How To Help Quake-Rattled Haitians
When news of a major earthquake in Haiti broke, many in these parts took notice. Southern Californians are all too familiar with powerful tremors.
Many are opening their hearts and some are opening their wallets to help out victims of the Haiti quake.
A wide variety of organizations are collecting donations to provide help to Haitians in need. Here's a short list of links to a few:
Catholic Relief Services
American Jewish World Service
Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres
