i'm certain that by now, everyone here has heard and seen the total devastation in Haiti from last week's 7.0 quake. The country couldn't have survived a shallow 1.0, let alone a mjor event like this...
even quake perpared areas like the western US & Japan would have been done in by this shallow earthquake.
i don't think anyone wants to even entertain just what the final toll will be, so why not help out? even if you only give $1 to one of the many donation drives, that will still go a long way to helping the people of Haiti recover from this disaster.
there's plenty of good charities who are collecting right now, such as the Red Cross, Save the Children, The Salvation Army, World Vision, DART and others...

well, first off I agree that in Haiti's infrastructure is unable to withstand such an earthquake. But human beings can only feel earthquakes from I think 2.0 and above, and buildings would only start to fall at 4.0 or 5.0 if I'm thinking right.
What makes this earthquake so bad in comparason to this happening in Japan or West America is that Haiti has had its infrastructure completely destroyed and the goverment paralysed. Also Transport is crippled as well. This means that for the first few days the aid effort was unco-ordinated and slow.
But every donation does make a differance. In America alone they have recieved over 2 million dollars in text donations, with 200,000 dollars (I think) coming in every hour.
