Haiti Earthquake Registers 7.0

Haiti, our Caribbean neighbor to the south suffered a tremendous earthquake yesterday. Haiti's denuded hilly terrain makes the impoverished country particularly susceptible to damage from hurricanes & earthquakes. They get hurricanes all the time. Now they have had the worst earthquake in their nation's history.
Ways to help the country that should have been a U.S. ally from their beginning:
Red Cross International Response Fund
The U.S. State Dept. recommends Center for International Disaster Information
Partners in Health
Locally, Matthew 25 Ministries
Also, Vodou Aid altho I could find no listing of these guys on the sits that rate charities. They might just be too small.
