If you are professional, you can volounteer your services. smiley I.e Doctor, Engineer, Nurses, Scientist etc appears to be in shortage. But don't expect to get paid for your time or anything like that.

Dont let the 419 boys see this oo- you could give them ideas for another scam undecided:

New Fraud Letter

I am a Haitian prince trapped under the rubble of the recent earthquake with all my gold, silver and briefcase of $10 million. I am currently typing this email with my laptop underground, and I am sending it to you because I heard you were a trustworthy businessman.  If you transfer $10,000 dollars to this account, my friends can access this funds and hire a bulldozer to save me fro this underground prison. As a reward, i would give you half of my wealth. Kindly waiting your response.

Thanks,

Prince Chop Mugu

@ Davidylan, It is true that charity begins at home but Haiti problem started before that of Jos. Just thinking sha. cool
@ Elrazor, thanks though i am a professional(Geologist), i am engaged now but will see what i can do.

@poster
As one poster has already stated, you can donate through Red Cross or GSM line (Globacom only) by text to HAITI to 33090.


@"charity begins at home"

It is very unfortunate that Nigerians are quick to compare oranges to apples. The mayhem in Haiti was as a result of unforeseen contingence. The disturbance in Jos is an avoidable catastrophe brought upon by the inhabitants of the city of Jos including the indigenes and non-indigenes. I do not believe that the principles intended by the saying that “charity begins at home” apply in these scenarios. Besides, it is the donor’s inalienable privilege to act as he/she wishes.
Re: What Can I Do To Help The Haitians by Chuckdee(m): 11:58am On Jan 31, 2010
You can actually make a donation to the Victims of Haiti Earthquake SECURELY by using a GLO line and sending a text message with the words: HAITI to 33090. N50 (50 Naira will be deducted from your balance) and the money will be sent to the RED CROSS by GLO. YOu can text as many times as you wish.

I think this is a nice and foul prove method from GLO. I received an sms about this and do like i have done, make that donation today!.

Hope this info helps.

Any money you send to Haiti will be used to build a new white haven resort. Say yes to neo-colonialism. Please do not send food or anything thats actually worth while in helping the Haitians.
