Here's a Haiti Earthquake Twitpic music video we made using Obama's address to the nation on the Haiti earthquake crisis. The images are Twitpics from across the internets: They're first-response citizen media reports of crushed buildings, death, destruction, hope, and life.
Wyclef's Yele Foundation has been working in Haiti for years and is an excellent and trusted organization. Log on to yele.org to see how you can help. Their site crashed earlier from heavy traffic, but is back up and running now.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
