Everyday Health is donating to the Haiti disaster earthquake relief efforts of the group Doctors Without Borders. A number of other aid organizations are also hard at work in Haiti, and they can use your donations — large or small.
Since the earthquake struck on Jan. 12, many non-profit organizations have been providing search and rescue aid, medical care, shelter, food, and other essential services in Haiti. All need additional funds to continue their work in the coming weeks and months.
