HOW TO HELP: Resources

Many people have asked NPR how they can make donations to charities involved in earthquake relief efforts. International charities are just beginning to ramp up their efforts in Haiti. If you're looking to give money to help these relief activities, we've compiled a list of some of the aid organizations responding to the disaster:

American Red Cross

American Jewish World Service

AmeriCares

CARE

Catholic Relief Services

Clinton Bush Haiti Fund

Direct Relief International

Doctors Without Borders

Habitat for Humanity

International Committee of the Red Cross

International Rescue Committee

Mercy Corps

Oxfam

Partners in Health

The Salvation Army

Save the Children

UNICEF

World Food Programme

One of the ways some organizations are collecting donations is through text message. You can text "HAITI" to 90999 to donate $10 to American Red Cross relief for Haiti, charged to your cell phone bill.

NPR is not endorsing or vouching for any of these groups. The list is just a starting point for you and your own research. There are a number of online tools available for evaluating charities and making donations to a broader range of NGOs, including CharityNavigator.org and NetworkForGood.org.
