Rescue Lives in Haiti

The International Rescue Committee has launched a television commercial calling for donations to help with the rescue efforts in Haiti. The ad is simple, flashing images of adults and children affected by the earthquake in Haiti, along with a clear text-based appeal for help. “Haiti crumbled in 35 seconds. You can help. Rescue it in less. Text Haiti to 25383 to give $5. Please help rescue Haiti”.
