Haiti Earthquake

The 12 January Richter 7.2 earthquake in Haiti  dominated international news through much of January.  News coverage has diminished, but the disastrous food, water, medical, infrastructural and security situation which has followed it continues.  The UN, USA and other governments and agencies eventually got resources flowing in through the airport and damaged port.  How can individuals far from Haiti continue to assist?  Notwithstanding a painfully slow-starting international aid effort, some NGOs were already on the ground and more now have significant activity; their major need is monetary donations.  Red Cross, Oxfam, UNICEF, MSF, SCF and many others come in to this category.
