How to Help Haiti: Aid Resources on the Web

This content originally appeared on my former Chicagosphere online-media blog, hosted on the Chicago Tribune‘s ChicagoNow network.

(Updated 7:27 p.m.) Several fellow Twitterers have been asking today how they can help the victims of yesterday’s devastating earthquake in Haiti that leveled the capital city of Port-au-Prince. Here is a list of resources I’ve found that Chicagoans and anyone else can use to figure out the best way for them to offer indirect and, in some cases, direct aid to people affected by the disaster…

The U.S. State Department has also set up a toll-free number for Americans to check on U.S. citizens living in the disaster zone, and the White House blog includes aid resource information as well.

Finally, the best, most timely updates about happenings in Haiti right now seem to be coming from the BBC. Check this regularly updated BBC News live web feed for the latest news from Haiti and Port-au-Prince.
