Posted By Gaiam Staff On January 14, 2010 @ 4:39 pm In Gaiam Happenings | 1 Comment
As you will have already heard and seen across the news, a cataclysmic earthquake measuring 7.0 magnitude caused absolute devastation in Haiti  on January 12, 2010.
Thousands of people still remain trapped under rubble and international aid workers are scrambling to provide medical care, food and water to tens of thousands of surviviors.
If you want to safely make a donation we have provided a list of reliable organizations below. Unfortunately, some see times of tragedy as an opportunity to take advantage of donors, and there are many scams out there already. Creating this list of sources is an effort to make sure your donation is not going into someone’s personal bank account!
