I'm sure the OP didn't mean to make light of the situation in Haiti.

Anyway, I didn't know about the drive. If I can find a "donation station" here in Clearwater, which should be easy due to its relatively close proximity, I am going to empty my closet of clothing that I don't use anymore.

So, the OP accomplished something with the post.

Whoa.. pull back a little. More of a topic regarding getting rid of sports-related clothes you will never wear again (and getting them to a place of need)... not a comment/joke about 200,000+ dead people.

Truth be told... my Hossa sweather will not make it to Haiti... I already have a bag of clothes ready to go to Salvation Army. Either way... I will never wear it again, but someone will

What's probably just as sad as this disaster is the fact that it took this disaster to bring Haiti to the national discussion.

Sorry off my soapbox now.

This thread isn't the most tasteful, but it did remind me of an

Turns out it has come up before, here.

This is a short list of links to highly trusted aid orgs working in Haiti right now.

Is there any way this (aid to Haiti) could become an Mgoblog project?
