Haiti

Some must see images from Haiti pre earthquake. It's so sad that a country that is already suffering so much would be devastated with such a major natural disaster. Below are some links to where you can donate to the cause:
Direct Relief International - Non-political, non-sectarian organization that “provides assistance without regard to race, ethnicity, political or religious affiliation, gender, or ability to pay.”
Doctors Without Borders - An international medical humanitarian organization working in more than 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
Partners in Health - PIH has been working on the ground in Haiti for over 20 years. We urgently need your support to help those affected by the recent earthquake.
Partners In Health (PIH) works to bring modern medical care to poor communities in nine countries around the world. The work of PIH has three goals: to care for our patients, to alleviate the root causes of disease in their communities, and to share lessons learned around the world.
Based in Boston, PIH employs more than 11,000 people worldwide, including doctors, nurses and community health workers. The vast majority of PIH staff are local nationals based in the communities we serve.

    That said, Arcade Fire is in partnership with a legit group, Partners In Health. They've always been supporters of Haiti.
