On Haiti, U.S First Lady Michelle Obama; USAfrica Publisher make appeals
U.S First Lady Michelle Obama has brought the clout of her office to benefit the traumatized citizens of Haiti. The taped public service announcement which appeals to Americans to donate to help the victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti is being broadcast on cable and some regular tv station.
She said in the 30-second ad that “The images from Haiti are heartbreaking… Homes, hospitals and schools destroyed. Families searching for loved ones. Parents trying to feed their children. But we can all do something. We can help the American Red Cross as it delivers the food, water and medicine that can save lives.”
Mrs. Obama is requesting donations of $10 by texting “Haiti” to 90999 or by calling call 1-800-Red Cross
