Donate: Yele Haiti

I spoke with Rev Yearwood this morning about the devastating destruction in Haiti; Hip Hop must act immediately with open hearts and loud voices.  We must do all that we can as individuals and collectively to help save the lives of our brothers and sisters in Haiti.      

Please make a donation today to Yele Haiti, Wyclef's organization, to support immediate relief to the people of Haiti.

You can use your cell phone to make a contribution.Text "Yele" to 501501, which will automatically donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund (it will be charged to your cell phone bill).

Or you can visit and click on DONATE.

The Hip Hop Caucus will be asking you to take additional action soon, as we gain better understanding of the needs in Haiti.  We know Haiti will need increased attention and resources from the international community to help it recover from this disaster, so let us ensure that our country does right.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Haitian people whose suffering I can only imagine, and the Haitian Americans who have lost their loved ones.

With great love all things are possible,
