Haiti native Wyclef Jean, is collecting donations to help those affected by the Haiti earthquake through his foundation Yéle Haiti.  His website: http://www.yele.org/ is down at the moment but do please keep checking.


"I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince tonight face catastrophe alone. We must act now."
~Wyclef Jean






Via Twitter, he asked Twitter World to help in the Haiti disaster relief effort by texting "Yele" to 501501. This donates $5 to the Yéle Haiti Foundation, automatically charged to your cell phone bill.
