MAKE YOUR DONATIONS NOW / HAITI EARTHQUAKE
======================================

Dear Reader,

A devastating earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale struck Haiti on 12 January 2010, 
killing an estimated 50,000 and affecting at least one million people. The situation in the capital 
Port-au-Prince and other nearby areas is dire, with hundreds of thousands of people in urgent need 
of assistance. 

In the immediate aftermath of the disaster, local Red Cross staff and volunteers were on the scene 
and continue to assist the injured and support hospitals struggling to cope.

Drawing on resources around the world the Red Cross is carrying out a huge emergency response 
operation. Pre-positioned relief goods were released immediately within Haiti and from other 
warehouses in the region. These consist of kitchen kits, shelter kits, personal hygiene kits, 
blankets and containers for storing drinking water.

As well as distributing vital supplies the Red Cross is providing medical aid and water for 
survivors.

Relief aid workers from the Red Cross have already been arriving at the Haitian Capital with relief 
materials.

Donations have been grouped into three categories:

1: Group A (?250 British Pounds Sterling to ?1,000.00 British Pounds Sterling)
2: Group B (?1,000.00 British Pounds Sterling to ?2,000.00 British Pounds Sterling)
3: Group C (?2,000.00 British Pounds Sterling and above)
