Super Easy Way to Give to Haiti Relief Effort

Step 1...Grab that overflowing change jar that you swear you're saving up to go to Tahiti, but let's face it, you never will.  You'll just pull out the quarters for lattes you don't need.

Step 2...Head to your nearest Coinstar kiosk and dump the coins in.  Find the nearest one here.

Step 3...Choose the option to donate the coins to the UNICEF Relief Fund for Haiti and take your tax donation receipt.

Yep.  That easy.

  1. Yep. It's a good idea.

    My heart breaks for those left behind. The ones gone are already in a better place.

  3. One of my friends has a son stuck in the country. They had already finalized the adoption, but they hadn't been able to complete his visa when the earthquake struck. There's a chance they'll be able to fly down today to get him. I'm checking Facebook every five minutes for her status updates!

  5. Omigosh, I've never used one of those CoinStar machines. I didn't know you could make a donation right there! How cool!
