Unless you've been avoiding all access to the Internet, news media, television, and conversations with other human beings for the last few weeks, you've heard of the terrible Haitian earthquake. Thousands are dead and the nation's government (which wasn't all that stable beforehand) has been absolutely overwhelmed by the scale of the disaster. I realize times aren't exactly easy right now, but I think it's safe to say that anyone reading this is in better shape than the Haitians.

If you'd like to help contribute to the relief effort, the Red Cross has gone about making it as easy as possible to do. If you text "Haiti" to 90999, a $10 charge will be added to your phone bill and the money will be donated to the Red Cross. The Red Crosses website confirms this text-to-donate offer as real.

Thanks to Phandroid for pointing this opportunity out. Donating literally does not get any easier than this. If you can afford to give, please do.
