Please support our ongoing efforts in Haiti . . . speedily and mightily . . .

On Monday President Bill Clinton, the UN Special Envoy for Haiti, traveled to Haiti to deliver emergency relief supplies, assess needs, and meet with Haitian Prime Minister Bellerive regarding immediate and long-term recovery. Today President Clinton and President George W. Bush are continuing their work to raise funds to help rebuild Haiti.

Dear Friend,

Five days ago, we launched a major effort to respond to the immediate and long-term needs of the people of Haiti. Already, more than 130,000 people have responded by donating funds.

Thank you for being one of them. We are touched by the outpouring of support and compassion for our neighbors.

The challenges in Haiti are enormous, and the road ahead will be long. Our immediate priority is to save lives. Organizations are on the ground delivering aid to as many people as possible, but many more people need assistance. We're responding to the unmet needs.

One hundred percent of your online donation will go toward relief efforts and helping Haiti rebuild in the coming years. We are committed to quickly spending your contributions on the Haitian people's immediate needs and wisely investing in their long-term rebuilding.

Please consider making another donation -- and encouraging your friends and family to do the same -- at:

Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, making rescue efforts even more difficult. Much of the infrastructure has been destroyed.

We're doing everything we can to help those in most need of assistance. And, through the generosity of caring citizens like you, we will ensure these efforts are sustained.

With gratitude for your ongoing support,

Bill Clinton
George W. Bush
