Help for Haiti

The nonprofit humanitarian relief group Project C.U.R.E. is accepting donations of first aid and hygiene supplies to help Haiti in the aftermath of its devastating earthquake. Donations can be sent to or dropped off at Project C.U.R.E. distribution centers in four cities nationwide: Denver, Phoenix, Nashville and Houston. To assist with transportation costs for medical relief supplies, Project C.U.R.E. seeks the support of individuals, groups, and organizations who are interested in contributing to relief efforts in Haiti. Donations can be made online here or by cash, check or credit card.

The Better Business Bureau serving Denver/Boulder advises that giving to charities to help Haiti through text messages can be safe and easy — but you should still use caution. The BBB Wise Giving Alliance has compiled a list of relief groups that meet BBB Standards for Charity Accountability.
