Help Haiti.

"Haiti has moved to center of the world's thoughts and the world's compassion" - British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
On tuesday afternoon, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake shook Haiti and left its inhabitants crumbling at its feet. No one could really imagine the extent of the damage until the next morning when horrifying images and videos started to circulate. The death toll remains unknown and to be quite honest I dont think I want to know. One of my fellow Twittians wrote, "#pleaseexplainwhy we finna help Haiti when we could BARELY HELP NEW ORLEANS ?!?!?!? HONESTLY!?!". Now while he does present a valid point, my first reaction was "What the hell is wrong with him?" Ignorance is at an all time high man. Two wrongs dont make a right. I bet if you were to ask anyone affected by Katrina if they would want Haitians to suffer simply because they did, they would answer NO. The thing that frustrates me the most is that Im almost postive this person has done nothing to help Katrina victims. No donations, no community service, nothing! People always complain, but never do anything to help execute the change.
I watched this video http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhd4jO2LN3U8fO98Fz and my mouth was hung open in shock at some parts.
I know Wyclef is helping his fellow Haitians by collecting money through Yele.com You can also use your cell phone to text “Yele” to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill). I chose this option and I hope you all will too.
