Haiti Earthquake Appeal
A shallow 7.2 magnitude earthquake devastated communities in the southwest of Haiti on August 14 local time. The death toll has almost reached 2,000 people and more than 9,900 injured in the quake and the following aftershocks. Locals raced to help ahead of Tropical Storm Grace a few days later. People are picking up the rubble with their bare hands as they try to save as many people as possible. You can help fund assistance.
