Help Haiti

by jhwygirl

Google has an easy page with easy ways to donate to several organizations.

One of the easiest is text messaging. You can text message “HAITI” to 90999 to donate $10 to Red Cross relief efforts
You can also text message “YELE” to 501501 to donate $5 to Yele Haiti’s Earthquake Relief efforts. You’ll see the charge on your phone bill.http://www.yonnedelot.org/

Another fine organization is Yonn Ede Lot.

As you all know – these are people who had very little to begin with. The destruction has taken even that. Monetary donations are critical. The logistics of this things makes food and water the main concerns. Remember – this is a country that had not enough food to begin with, and little clean water.

The importance of net neutrality can not be overstated – the ability to access anything from any provider is key to the free flow of information. Allowing corporate control over what can arguably be called one of the last truly free places where ideas are exchanged freely would be a tragedy for free speech.

Do you want your provider deciding what you can access on the internet?

The FCC’s public comment period for their proposed net neutrality rules ends this Thursday. There are several ways to comment – two sites, CREDO and Free Press have a place where you can submit public comment. You can also use the FCC’s website, although it is a bit cumbersome.

While you’re at it, you might also consider contacting the White House. They are, apparently, backing off of their initial support for the protections.
