What can postal employees do for Haiti?

PMG Jack Potter sent out a message to all employees, sharing our collective grief over the Haiti tragedy.

"As we begin a new year, I would ask you to keep all those who have lost loved ones, or who are still searching for their loved ones, in your prayers. Tragedies like this, which in the past would have taken weeks or months for us to learn about, demonstrate how small our world has become and how fragile we all are."

He also encourages employees to help.
"Many local and national charities are hard at work providing relief to the victims of this disaster. I would encourage you, if you see fit, to work with your local disaster relief groups to provide financial support so helpful to those people of the world in desperate need."

The  U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has recommended cash contributions as the most effective way to provide relief assistance. USAID provides a listing of nonprofit agencies working to provide assistance at
