Top Haitian Earthquake Relief Programs

The recent earthquake in Haiti has caused a level of devastation that I hope most us will never have to suffer through in our lifetimes.

I knew I wanted to help but I didn’t know which charity, or charities, would put my donation to the best use.

Fortunately I found a report on CNN news that recommended a site that actually helps you make your choice.

The site is called “Charity Navigator” and it provides an overview of a dozen or so charities that are currently active in the Haitian relief efforts.

In their own words:

” Here are a few of our 3 and 4-star charities responding to the crisis along with a synopsis of their plans. Each of these charities has a history of working on massive disasters and/or of working in Haiti”

So if you’d like to help those in need in Haiti but don’t know where to turn for more “unbiased” information…

Check out Charity Navigator:

    Hey Jeff, Thank you for the tip on charities for Haiti. I really appreciate your concern for them out there. We really can’t comprehend the mess in Haiti until we are actually there to see it with our own eye’s. It is horrific to say the least.

    Jeff Johnson: Thanks for the postive feedback. I removed your “don’t send money to xxx organization” message… I certainly appreciate the thought but I have no way to verify your accusations and they are a very well known humanitarian organization.

    The list I forwarded is “background checked” by CNN and that’s the best I can do at this point.

    The important thing is to help if you can and avoid scams from organizations you’ve never heard of.

    Hey Jeff,

    I’m already on your list and I’ve been following your site for a while. I’m not really even an affiliate marketer – maybe I should be – but I appreciate your linking into the Haiti charity effort. Our site is trying to raise $1 billion dollars for charities through businesses who are willing to donate a portion of their sales to charity. If you are interested in helping with this or posting our link to your site, I’d appreciate it.

    Jeff Johnson says: Sorry, but the Haitian charity links I posted on my blog were background checked by CNN news and they are much more prepared to verify charities than I am… so I can’t officially endorse your charity at this time. But I certainly appreciate charitable efforts so I wish you luck!
