Haiti Earthquake: A Message From Rep. Carolyn Maloney

Just in, a statement from Rep. Carolyn Maloney's office:

The toll of human suffering in Haiti is unimaginable and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in the earthquake zone. President Obama has directed the full force of U.S. government agencies to make the Haitian relief effort their highest priority.  When disaster strikes around the world, Americans have a proud tradition of giving generously to help those in need.  New Yorkers who are interested in donating to the relief cause should contact the Red Cross or any of the organizations recommended by USAID at www.usaid.gov.
