You can make a difference even just by making Google code available on your site

On January 12, 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. It's easy to sit back and almost ignore the news reports. In most cases neither you nor people you know have been directly affected, however, as of this moment, estimates of the numbers killed in the Haitian earthquake range from 50,000 to 200,000. Did you know that's about the population of Richmond, VA? It might be a cliche at this stage but even $1 can help and might be the difference in saving another Life. You can join recovery efforts mobilizing around the world to assist earthquake victims and your donation will help disaster victims rebuild their lives and their communities.

There are however other ways you can help too if you don't feel like helping financially. Google Crisis response is an application which you can embed in your website or in your blog to help other people to share any information they have about the victims of the Haiti disaster.

You can also donate to save the lives there. Follow this link to donate.
