Another Idea to Donate to Haiti

I saw this on Twitter from, of all people, John Mayer.  Simply text "Haiti" to 90999 and you can donate $10 to the relief efforts.  It seems like a very good idea.

CNN has some more details in this article.

The point is that there are a lot of things people can do.  As for those who do nothing, there could be some very good reasons (or not so good reasons).  I'm not going to judge.  Everybody has their priorities, misguided or otherwise.

Still it doesn't seem to take a lot to go to a website, donate blood, volunteer time, text $10, and the other ideas that can help those in need.  I'd like to believe that everybody will do something, but let's face it - there are very real factors that make people bury their heads in the sand.

I hope everyone does their part.  These are lives we're talking about.
