We encourage anyone to support the relief efforts in Haiti by
donating to the Red Cross,
or any other charitable organization that is mobilized to assist the Haitian
people. Over the coming days, you’ll see the ad shown here on TripIt to encourage our community of travelers to do
what they can. Another very easy way to donate $10 to the Red Cross
is to text the word “Haiti”
to 90999 on your mobile phone. (All SMS charges are waived.) Google has also put together a list of
organizations that need support.
Finally, our hearts go out to the people of Haiti
this time of crisis. As San Francisco
Bay Area residents, we have first-hand experience with earthquakes, although fortunately
none have been this destructive. Thanks to
everyone for doing what they can.
