As you probably know, a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, basically destroying the country. The situation there was extremely bad even before, but now hospitals are down, there’s no water and no food for a very big part of the population and no way to receive medical treatment; it’s estimated that there are between 100.000 and 500.000 deaths. I will NOT go into further details (which you can find here), I won’t post any heartbreaking photos (unbelievable ones here), and won’t post videos (one here); if you want more, you should just google it, you won’t get it from me. WHY ? Because just knowing doesn’t change anything.
Instead, I’m gonna tell you what you can do to help, which is what you should do; or at least what I know.
That’s about all I was able to find out. You can still help, no matter when you read this! Just don’t let it get by. If you don’t believe me, just listen to Letterman.
