  2. It is so important to make a donation here if you can. I would also encourage everyone to make their donations to the American Red Cross rather than UNICEF because of the political provisions that UNICEF has been known to attach to its aid.

    • I also have a link to Samaritans Purse (which has no state or federal funding and is 100% non profit). They have already mobilized, there is a video on their site and lots of other things. We deal with them every year and we know that what you send to them goes where it’s supposed to. It is better to go through a non profit! Any of you who donate please let me know at my blog http://www.twilightmovies.org/blog/mac I am creating a calculator to see how much money or anthing other non perishable items the Twilight Fandom can come up with. TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

      By the way Thinking of Rob, awesome post and lots of great information! You rock for getting this out so soon. I had it on my heart but just didn’t do it fast enough. YOU ROCK!

  6. I was born and raised in Dominican Republic which is 2/3 of the same island Haiti is in. I have been to Haiti once and even though D.R. is an impoverished country, NOTHING compares to what I saw while in Haiti the short time I was there. The images of the struggle people face there everyday will forever stay with me. Please everyone, help however you can.

I don’t have TWITTER – but I know that in the past so much has been accomplished through it and I was thinking that someone should start a Tweet? about Rob joining George Clooney and Wyclef Jean on the telethon for Haiti on 1/22. PLEASE. Thanks
