Please click here for an LDS response , and how you too can help.
The cliff notes are:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has already sent baby kits, hygiene kits, and water which arrived yesterday.
2 additional planes will be loaded (80,000 pounds each plane) with water purification bottles, food, blankets, tarps, tents, and other supplies; along with medical supplies and LDS Dr.s who will set up temporary hospitals in the Church Buildings in and around Port au Prince, most of which remain in tact. These 2 planes will be in the air Saturday and Sunday. Supplies will trucked into the area via coordinated efforts with local partners already in place and also via the Dominican Republic.

100% of all donations made to and through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints go directly to the aide of these people. No personnel are paid. All volunteers spend their own money and time to help. Be assured that if you choose to donate, every penny will go directly to the victims' relief and supplies.

Thank you.

P.S. In response to a query in my mail box: "How safe are the church buildings? I heard that even the regular hospitals are unstable and they are using tents instead of being inside. I don't think any buildings are safe there."

All buildings built around the globe by or for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are built to the U.S. safety standards, and therefor are more stable than most as they meet or exceed U.S. Earthquake Safety Requirements. Most of the buildings, including hospitals and even the Royal Palace, were probably not built to retrofit or current U.S. safety standards. This explains why these buildings are still stable and standing.
