We’re never prepared.
It crushes the powerful and the meek.

“WASHINGTON, DC – The Center for International Disaster Information (CIDI) encourages Americans to respond appropriately and responsibly to today’s earthquake in Haiti. Those who wish to best help the victims in Haiti are asked to donate cash as an alternative to in-kind donations such as clothing and canned goods. Cash donations are widely recognized as the most efficient and effective means of relief, a policy supported by CIDI’s funding partner, the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance, and those in the established international disaster response community.”
