Join together to help Haiti

Politics have no part in humanitarian aid in times of disaster. I'm very proud to see our country rise up and respond to the tragedy in Haiti. It will take a massive effort on all fronts. Let's all join together to make a difference.

But you have to be careful. There are scams out there. The Whitehouse has some recommended ways you can help. Help for Haiti: Learn What You Can Do

Get Information about Friends or Family

The State Department Operations Center has set up the following phone number for Americans seeking information about family members in Haiti: 1-888-407-4747 (due to heavy volume, some callers may receive a recording). You can also send an email to the State Department. Please be aware that communications within Haiti are very difficult at this time.
