Wyclef Jean Haiti Earthquake: Text Yele to 501501 to Help Yele Haiti Foundation

Filed in Gather News Channel by on January 13, 2010 0 Comments

Wyclef Jean is appealing to the public for everyone to donate what they can to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund.  The website yele.org is finally coming up on my screen after several minutes of failing to load (probably flooded with traffic).  You can also make and automatic $5 donation by texting the word “yele” to the number 501501.

Wyclef Jean takes this disaster especially seriously because his family is Haitian and he lived there until he was 13.  He started the Yele Haiti Foundation in 2005 to provide scholarships to disadvantaged youth in Haiti.

You can also make and automatic $10 donation to the Red Cross by texting “HAITI” to 90999.

Oh yeah, and Twitter broke the news, and yadda yadda yadda.
