Relief Drive for Those Affected by the Earthquake in Haiti to Be Held on Monday, January 18th in Fort Lauderdale

HOLLYWOOD, FL--(Marketwire - January 15, 2010) - Just 600 miles away from Florida, the island of Haiti was struck by a massive earthquake Tuesday that has crippled our neighbors to the southeast.

Now it's time for all of us to do our part to help, Real Meaningful Gestures and 1-800-Need-Help, along with Clear Channel Radio and Mobile Mike, will be holding a relief drive for the people of Haiti on Monday, January 18th, at the Habitat for Humanity located at 505 West Broward Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The drive will be fifteen hours long from 6am - 9pm and feature all of the Clear Channel Radio Stations from the Keys to the Palm Beaches. Everyone who would like to contribute is urged to donate bags of rice, beans, and clothing, bottled water, monetary donations, or anything they can spare that can be used to help the people devastated by this earthquake. Dr. Danny Feder, the President of 1-800-Need-Help, has committed to contribute $10,000 to the relief efforts. "This is our opportunity to help our neighbors in their time of need, and we urge those who can, to visit the drive on Monday," said Feder. "If you can't make it on Monday, you can make a donation to the American Red Cross International Response Fund at www.redcross.org or by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS. Donors can designate their gifts to the Haitian relief effort; you also donate $10 to Haiti relief by texting "HAITI" to "90999." S.R. Tommie, President of RMG, urges everyone to come out and join the efforts, "We are working together to make a difference in the lives of others that are in need. That is a big part of our obligation to the Creator, ourselves and each other."
