Looking over the Port-au-Prince Bay, hillsides of once humble homes now lay as ruins of concrete. An earthquake with a magnitude of no mercy has buried everyone - from UN workers  and the Parliament to the most impoverished communities of the world. An estimated ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND HUMANS have lost their lives.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, by a severe margin. Four out of five people live in poverty and more than half in abject poverty. Prior to Tuesday's earthquake, aid was greatly needed. Now, even more so.

If you have some bucks to spare, be it by cooking at home for the eve or resisting tempting purchases, Haiti can use it. 

Technology has simplified donations. You can text "Yele" to 501501, which will donate $5 to the Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund donations will be charged to your cell phone bill, or you can click here.

Anything helps. Do it for Teddy.

RIP Teddy P
