Living in California plenty of us are aware that if the "big one" hits we are royally screwed.

Well the big one hit Haiti and details of its destruction keep unfolding.

Also more and more scammers have already begun popping up.

If you want to donate...which I KNOW you do...the easiest way is to text "Haiti" to 90999 and $10 will be added to your next phone bill.

This is LEGIT and is being run by the American Red Cross.

As I type this over $1 million dollars has been raised so far.

Here is a link to even more donation sites.

If you opened this then by all means donate now.

Thank you as well.

Actually I was considering posting this on "General Tiki" before getting on-line this morning. I had several ways to justify that but let's stick with this thread.

For those of you interested in making a larger contribution through more traditional means, here's the way to do it.

The amount of death, misery, and suffering going on just off our shores is unimaginable.

One of our good friends has family in Haiti. They are still looking for her father. Anything you can contribute could help to find her missing father. Mahalo to everyone who has given a little something to help the people of Haiti and their families in the US.

The Red Cross text messaging effort has so far raised over $8 million .

That is amazing.
