The devastation in Haiti is incomprehensible, but there are ways all of us can help. Two ways that also have the added bonus of letting you shop? Haiti Relief Fundraiser sponsored by Indie Fixx. Bid on handcrafted items, like this sweet Sycamore Street Press print or Pixel and Hank headband, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross International Response Fund.

Another way you can shop to help? Craft Hope for Haiti. Buy items donated by Etsy crafters, like this cute and chic Bridesmaids print or this charming Vintage Hair Bow, and all proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders in Haiti.


Or, tune in tonight for MTV’s Hope for Haiti telethon organized by George Clooney. It will be on most every network at 8pm ET/PT with performances by Jay-Z, Rihanna, U2, Madonna,Coldplay, Beyonce,  Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera, Dave Matthews, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift and many more. You’ll also be able to purchase an album of the performances and video of the telecast on iTunes. Apple, the record labels and the artists will donate their share of the proceeds to Haiti relief funds managed by “Hope for Haiti Now” charities, including the Red Cross and Wyclef’s Yele Haiti foundation. Performances will also be available for purchase in the days following the event through Amazon’s MP3 service and Rhapsody.
