Two brilliantly quick and easy ideas

If you are in the US, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Appeal from your cell cell phone by texting ‘HAITI’ to ‘90999′.

You can also donate $5 to Wyclef Jean’s charity Yele Haiti by texting ‘Yele’ to 501501.

And why not take five seconds to post a reply below if you’ve done this, or if you’ve donated elsewhere. Nothing like guilting others into helping out.

      I’m fairly certain it’s legit – was on MSNBC this morning, and you can read about it here:

    alright, just recalled seeing something today about it not being legit. Figured I’d mention it just in case.
