After-Math: How Much Are North Americans Giving to Haiti?

Just how generous are we First World next-door neighbors when it comes to Haiti earthquake relief?

It’s being reported that the star-studded Hope for Haiti Now telethon has raised more than $57 million so far.

Up north, the similarly formatted Canada for Haiti telethon brought in $18.8-millionthe Canadian federal government was responsible for half of that number, and it promises match up to $50 million in civilian contributions.

And through $10 increments, the American Red Cross’ Text 2 Help campaign pulled in about $25 million by the end of last week.

If those numbers aren’t doing it for you, just keep on texting donations to these reputable relief organizations:
