How to Help Earthquake Recovery Efforts in Haiti

Please Support the Earthquake Recovery in Haiti through the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.

I verified this web site is recommended by official website such as so I used it to give.

On January 12, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti just outside the capital city of Port-au-Prince. The devastation – in lives lost, property destroyed, and families displaced – is immense.

At the request of President Obama, we are partnering to help the Haitian people reclaim their country and rebuild their lives.

Our immediate priority is to save lives. The critical needs in Haiti are great, but they are also simple: food, water, shelter, and first-aid supplies. The best way concerned citizens can help is to donate funds that will go directly to supplying these material needs.

Through the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, we will work to provide immediate relief and long-term support to earthquake survivors. We will channel the collective goodwill around the globe to help the people of Haiti rebuild their cities, their neighborhoods, and their families.

We ask each of you to give what you can to help ensure the people of Haiti can build back stronger and better than ever.

Both of us have personally witnessed the tremendous generosity and goodwill of the American people and of our friends around the world to help in times of great need. There is no greater rallying cry for our common humanity than witnessing our neighbors in distress. And, like any good neighbor, we have an obligation and desire to come to their aid.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, and we hope you will donate to this worthwhile cause. The people of Haiti now need our assistance more than ever.

President William J. Clinton
President George W. Bush

Many of us in the Bay Area remember well our own 7.1 magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake from 1989. I was lucky to be in on the second floor of my well constructed Sunnyvale town house during that quake waiting to watch the Bay Bridge World Series. (I moved to a single floor house after that... all things being equal, why press my luck?) By winning the genetic lottery, I was lucky to be in a well constructed building where all I had to do was hold up my bookshelves that wanted to fall over onto my bed. These people in Haiti are so poor their government buildings and homes have collapsed. They need our help. I've heard over 100,000 may have died. President Bush said they need money and he and President Clinton will make sure it is well spent.
