We have Haiti PSAs

Besides the fact that the Text Haiti to 90999 mobile giving campaign has been extremely successful - raising more than $5 million for Haiti relief - we now a handful of moving PSAs to raise money for the effort. The American Red Cross teamed up with a handful of celebrities, in addition to the First Lady, to spread the word.

Early estimates indicate that as many as three million people may be affected by the catastrophic earthquake which hit Haiti on Jan. 12, 2010.

The PSA include everyone from Morgan Freeman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tim McGraw, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Reese witherspoon and Zoe Saldana.

I have included Saldana's, the star of the popular sci-fi flick Avatar, PSA below for your viewing.

Thank you to those who have supported the American Red Cross and Haiti. Without your efforts, we could not help the people who need it most.
