A Moment For Haiti

Let's get serious for a moment, because this is important.

Canadians raised more than $16 million for victims of the Haitian earthquake at the Canada for Haiti telethon and its French counterpart, Ensemble Pour Haiti. Sandra Oh made a brief appearance in Canada For Haiti. If you missed the telethon which aired last night, you can now watch it here (Source)

The Canadian government will match the contributions made from individuals up to $50 million dollars. So if you live in Canada, go to Canada For Haiti if you would like to make a donation.

If you live in the US, CNN has a guide on what you can do to help out which you can find here. They have also compiled a list of charities to help you decide who to donate to. The list is available here

Dear readers from around the world, please donate whatever you can to your favourite charity.

That is all. Over and out.
