Haiti Earthquake: Relief Update #7

This weekend, special Red Cross teams trained in search and rescue were able to save 40 people from a collapsed supermarket, including a small child, after 26 hours continuous efforts. Please remain hopeful for the people of Haiti. View More Photos

Without a doubt, this is a massive urban disaster of unprecedented proportions, and we know that this is going to be a costly long-term recovery operation.

As of January 17, we have raised more than $103 million for relief efforts. If you have not had a opportunity to help yet or if you would like to do more, here's how you can make a difference in the lives of the Haiti people:
