AmeriCares has been on the ground in Haiti since 1984. Over the years, they've provided more than $145 million worth of medical aid and humanitan assistance in that country. This is why AlterNet, from our earned advertising revenue in 2009, has made a donation to AmeriCares' relief efforts in Haiti. We hope you can join us in making a contribution, even a small one. In this case every dollar literally helps save lives.

AmeriCares -- Donate to help Haiti earthquake survivors http://www.alternet.org/AmeriCares_011410
The death and destruction in Haiti is almost too horrible to describe. That's what our partners on the ground have been telling us since the massive earthquake struck.
Please make a donation to help us deliver emergency aid to survivors in Haiti.
Within the first 24 hours, we began preparing our first airlift of over $3 million worth of medicine, hospital supplies, and other humanitarian aid to Haiti, and we're preparing more shipments as our partners tell us what's most needed. Would you please make a donation to enable us to fill more containers with antibiotics, pain relievers, bandages and medical supplies to save lives in Haiti?
You may not know AmeriCares, but last year we provided more than $1 billion in medicine and other humanitarian aid to poor people in 80 countries as well as in the United States. 99% of your donation dollar gets to the field because so much of the aid we provide is donated by the manufacturers. In fact, for every dollar you donate, AmeriCares can provide $35 worth of medicine and other humanitarian aid.
AmeriCares knows Haiti, because we've provided more than $145 million worth of medical and humanitarian aid since 1984. Haiti is already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere with more than three-quarters of its residents living on less than $2 a day.
The earthquake has devastated Haiti's already limited ability to provide care for its people. Please help us deliver lifesaving aid by making a gift to our Haiti Emergency Relief Fund today. http://www.alternet.org/AmeriCares_011410
