Help Twitter help Haiti.
Haiti needs our hope and our help. We encourage everyone to engage and stay connected—the life cycle of this humanitarian endeavor must extend long after the initial burst of compassion. Communication and hope during events like these are important, but real participation on even the most modest level is critical. On this page, you'll find resources we've researched to help you learn about what’s happening in and around Haiti as well as simple and effective methods to donate directly to the cause.
Thanks, Biz Stone & Evan Williams
On Friday, January 22, we’ll be tuning in to watch the Hope for Haiti Now telethon at 8 PM EST hosted by George Clooney, Wyclef Jean and CNN's Anderson Cooper on a variety of networks. Everyone is coming together for this amazing event, so thanks to all of the folks involved. We’ll be watching from Twitter HQ.
See live tweets from the show here.
