got their shit together immediately in the aftermath of the first 7.0 quake last Tuesday.´ Below is an enormous list of truly great and very trustworthy organizations where you can help. I do have a separate blog to write for the Globalist Community regarding the future rebuilding of Haiti, but for now (and quite some time to come) desire ONLY to aid the most needy. (All information listed here can be verified at www.cnn.com and click the ³Impact Your World´ link). (CNN) -- As relief assistance continues in Haiti, agencies are asking people for money, not material goods, to keep those efforts going. Most organizations will use the money donated to purchase immediate needs, such as water, food, shelter and medical supplies. These agencies have set up phone lines, online donation pages and even texting for individuals to contribute to their relief efforts. We've compiled a list of a few organizations who are in Haiti helping those in need. These resources include the highest-rated charities by CharityNavigator.org, which is an independent, nonprofit organization that evaluates charity groups based on effectiveness and financial stability. These sites are vetted by CNN journalists for credibility. For additional resources, go to Impact Your World American Jewish World Service The agency supports grass-roots, community-based organizations in remote locations whose needs are not always met by larger organizations.
