How to help the earthquake victims in Chile

It wasn't very long ago that many of us contributed whatever dollars we could to help the earthquake victims in Haiti. Now it's time to put our charity dollars to good use in South America.

As you probably have heard by now, a major (8.8 magnitude) earthquake struck Chile on Saturday morning.

Several relief agencies are on their way to provide aid, but they need funding.

Below are some reputable organizations that you might want to consider helping out with a few of your charity dollars. Click the link for each organization for info on what they're doing and how to donate.

American Red Cross

Chilean Red Cross

Doctors Without Borders

Habitat for Humanity

International Medical Corps

Operation USA


Save the Children


Or donate $10 instantly from your cell phone:

Text "REBUILD" to "50555" and automatically donate $10 to Operation USA's disaster relief efforts in Chile. Operation USA was a co-recipient of the 1997 Nobel Peace Prize, so we know they do good work.
