Helping Haiti: Yankees donate $500K to aid relief operations

The death toll after Haiti's 7.0-magnitude earthquake may exceed 100,000, according to one government official.
Earlier on Wednesday tens of thousands wandered dazed and sobbing in the chaotic, broken streets, hoping desperately for assistance.

One young man yelled at reporters in English: "Too many people are dying. We need international help ... no emergency, no food, no phone, no water, no nothing."
That image is horrifying and I think this country's cry for help was heard by the Yankees, as they generously donated $500,000 to aid relief operations. I don't know anyone from Haiti, but I just donated $25. It's easy to do, just click here and let them know how much you are willing to help.
