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:
