If you want to help the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti, here are a a few ways to do it. Starting with Santa Barbara's own Direct Relief International, which is already doing great work in the region. Here is a link to their donation page.
Doctors Without Borders is also using a dynamic (and apparently very efficient) method to set up impromptu hospitals using reusable, inflatable lifeboat material. Their donation page is here. Pretty smart.
The Clinton Global Initiative is also very active in providing supplies and fund-raising support for earthquake victims.
One can only hope that after the dust clears, and (thousands of) bodies are buried, that the global community can help the people of Haiti rebuild in a more robust and sustainable way.
