Help Haiti - A Guide to Haiti Relief Funds
The blogging community is like any other community, a collective of individuals working in concert with one another. As a blogger for over eight years, I have seen how our community can come together to help those in need. We here at Technorati are tremendously saddened by the destructive powers of the earthquake in Haiti and want to use our resources to help in whatever way we can.
We will be featuring stories on the ongoing relief effort, as well as, ways we can all help the people of Haiti. Often in instances like this people want to help, but don't know how, and even worse, some people or groups use disasters to take advantage of our instincts to help.
As part of our efforts we will research what organizations are assisting, do our best to verify their reputability, find out what they need and how YOU can help. Keep checking back to this page for updates on how you can be a part of the effort to help those desperately in need.
