Haiti’s Earthquake

The Washington Post calls it the “disaster of the century.”  The New York Times says it may be Haiti’s “worst earthquake in more than 200 years.”  Our hearts go out to those suffering right now.  Naturally, we want to know what we can do to help.  Right now.  What I have found so far (please feel free to post more below in the comments.) :

This blog: http://www.whatisleft.org/lookie_here/2010/01/six-ways-you-can-help-in-haiti.html seems to have a list of organizations and aid groups already working and/or on their way to Haiti.

The Washington Post has a comment section (with a link which I hope works) with readers posting about various aid organizations.

The US State Department also has posted on their blog (http://www.blogs.state.gov/) how to help.
