Rock 'n' Relief for Haiti

The devastation in Haiti is simply unprecedented. It's a terrible, terrible situation and people will continue to die. It's a race against time. Money speaks, so if you want to help with a small donation, there are a few really easy ways to do it through a simple text message. The donations will appear on your next phone bill. You can donate $5 to Wyclef Jean's fund by texting ""Yele" to 501501 and hit send. I did read that some of the accounting in Jean's organization was a little shady, but I would have to imagine Jean would ensure everything's legit for this cause. But if you want more peace of mind, you can also donate $10 through the Red Cross by texting "Haiti" to 90999 or the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund by texting "Quake" to 20222.

But for those of you who want dig a little deeper and get rock out to some great music. Here are two opportunities:
Emergency Benefit Concert for Haiti in NYC Jan. 20 - 21, 24-25
Haiti Mizik Relief in Miami, Fla. Jan. 23-24
