Update: Big Dawg sends out aid request for Haiti: Hillary cancels rest of her Asia trip, flies back to D.C. to work on assisting Haiti…

Update: Big Dawg is sending for help on all fronts, he is doing an excellent live radio phone interview with Greta now, will get it up. Blogging the interview:  He says the next 10 days are crucial. We need four things, food, water, shelter, first aid supplies. Best thing to give is money even 5.00, his UN office has website for haiti earthquake, text haiti20222 and it will transfer $10.00. That money is IMMEDIATELY moved to buy basic medical supplies, clean water, provisions to put people up at night and care for wounded until we can put this together.

Most important is to get people out from rubble. Russia is sending helicopters, China is sending in their earthquake team, American people can help , for 3-4 more days we can find people alive under this rubble but we need to be able to treat them when we pull them out:

Gina,

Today, our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Haiti who are recovering from a devastating earthquake. Buildings have collapsed, thousands of people are missing, and many are presumed homeless.

My UN office and the rest of the UN system are monitoring the situation. While we don’t yet know the full impact of this 7.0-magnitude earthquake, we do know that the survivors need immediate help.

There’s a way you can help Haiti recover and rebuild right now.

Approximately 2 million people live in the capital of Haiti and the surrounding areas where the disaster struck.

What we do in these first 48 hours determines how many lives we can save. Together, we can help communities get back on their feet.

I have long been committed to helping Haiti “build back better” from the 2008 hurricanes and prepare for future disasters. Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, now needs our assistance more than ever.

Help provide immediate relief and long-term support to earthquake survivors by making a donation today:

Thank you for joining me in praying for the people of Haiti and bringing hope to the survivors. Working together, we can help them build back stronger and better.

Bill Clinton
UN Special Envoy for Haiti

Hillary and the Big Dawg ( as UN Special Envoy to Haiti) are working to assist Haiti while Lamestream Media and Al Sharpton work on tearing them down…

PlumLine:

A gut-wrenching moment from Hillary Clinton about the Haiti horror at her presser today, per the State Department transcript:

It is Biblical, the tragedy that continues to haunt Haiti and the Haitian people. It is so tragic. They had the four hurricanes last year. We had a good plan. We were just feeling positive about how we could implement that plan. It was U.S., U.N., international. We had donors lined up. We had private businesses beginning to make investments.

There was so much hope about Haiti’s future, hope that had not been present for years. And along comes Mother Nature and just flattens it.

Here is Hillary’s speech at the Haiti Donor Conference just this past April:

To help Haiti see here:

Via the State Department:

To help, text “HAITI” to “90999″ and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill. Or visit Red Cross and Mercy Corps to contribute. Also call 1-888-407-4747
