Here’s the link again for the Maine Public Broadcasting webpage on the Haiti earthquake. It has news, a map, links to charities and more. Here’s a link to that page.

Remember, before you rush to give, take a moment to avoid being scammed. Give to a known charity, especially one that was already in Haiti before the earthquake.

Here’s a link to the Better Business Bureau’s landing page on giving to charities. They have suggestions and recommendations to avoid being scammed. Follow the link to a button specifically to giving in wake of the earthquake in Haiti. http://www.bbb.org/us/charity/
