Help For Haiti

Help For Haiti 1Devastation and sadness are words that only barely describe the challenges facing the people of Haiti today.

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that hit the country a worldwide humanitarian effort has unfolded to provide assistance.

Call To Action

“This is a watershed moment. It’s historic,” said Albe Angel, founder and CEO of Give On the Go, whose company is helping Haitian-born musician Wyclef Jean raise funds for his Yele Haiti Foundation. Users of mobile devices can make an instant donation of $5 to the charity by texting “Yele” to 501501. The charge later will appear on the donor’s telephone bill.
