The following is a statement from the American Red Cross Website:

"On January 12, a series of earthquakes measuring 6.5 to 7.3 on the Richter scale devastated Haiti. The American Red Cross is working with its partners in the global Red Cross and Red Crescent network, including the Haitian Red Cross, and other partners to assist those affected by this disaster.

Your gift to the American Red Cross will support emergency relief and recovery efforts to help those people affected by the earthquake in Haiti. Assistance provided by the American Red Cross may include sending relief supplies, mobilizing relief workers and providing financial resources and recovery."

To donate $10 to The American Red Cross Haiti Relief efforts, text: HAITI to 90999. Or, you can donate by clicking Donate Now. This link will take you to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development donation page. If you would like to help out the Red Cross in other ways, or for other causes, you can visit their main website HERE. You can also locate your local Red Cross at this LINK.

There are several other reputable charities out there that you can donate to in an effort to help those devastated by the earthquakes in Haiti. Just do a little homework to be sure the charity you decide to donate to is legit. Disasters do bring out the best in people, but they can also bring out the worst as far as scammers go. It's best to stick with well established charities, such as the Red Cross.

From all of us at Gimme Your Hand Entertainment, thank you for your support and prayers as it relates to the Haitian earthquake victims and their families.
