Help Haiti – The Yo-Yo Communities Pledge UPDATE


Very rarely do we as a community have the opportunity to help out on a world wide cause.  Available for purchase over at YoYoNation is a YoYoFactory Wood Yo-Yo for 10 dollars and every cent is donated to the Doctors without Boarders.

The 7.1 magnitude Earthquake hit the nation extremely hard and the death toll numbers are staggering.  Not only are many dead, but many many many more are injured or dying.   What makes the problem even worse is that as what the news is reporting right now, the Haitian government is unable to enact any disaster recovery plan.  Food, clothing, water, medicine, and shelter is all needed in Haiti, and the Humanitarian Aid foundations could use your money to help.


Below are other ways you can help.   As I find them, (or if you find them, please let me know in the comment section) I’ll try to get them up here.

I strongly encourage everyone to do what they can, even if all they can do is forward the information.


You can also donate via Text Message to various campains, such as the ones listed below.

  • Text HAITI to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross
  • Text HAITI to 25383 to donate $5 to International Rescue Committee
