HaitiNot to be a buzz-killer or anything, but it's time you pulled your head out of that video game and got involved in something that will really help people who need it.

As I'm sure you've heard, the country of Haiti suffered an unimaginable tragedy yesterday when a major earthquake hit the nation's capitol city of Port-au-Prince. Right now, the estimates are are over 100,000 dead.  Haiti isn't a wealthy nation, so donations for rescue operations, food, and emergency support are integral to helping the Haitian people.

We don't call for action much on TheFeed, but everyone here at G4 is sincerely and seriously imploring you to take action now -- we're all pulling out our checkbooks and credit cards, so should you.

Below are links to a number of relief charities. Please use them and donate as much as you can possibly afford to.

  •  Red Cross. Visit redcross.org and click Donate, or call (800) REDCROSS. Or: text: GIVE to 2HELP (24357).

Or text "HAITI" to "90999" and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.
