On January 12, a devastating earthquake hit Haiti. A week later, the Caribbean nation is still struggling to pick up the pieces. Nickelodeon is pitching in to try and help the residents of Haiti, where over half of the population is under 18-years-old.
Nick started a new site just for teens, letting you know how you can get involved. Visit The Big Help: Help Haiti for tons of ideas on how you can make a difference, including coordinating a fundraiser and supporting a relief organization.
True Jackson, VP's Keke Palmer is joining Nickelodeon's cause as well. She took to her MySpace page to rally for help. "Please let's continue to pray for the people of Haiti," Keke wrote. "What has happened to their country is horrendous. Please, please, please keep them in your prayers. Also, you can make a donation to Wyclef Jean's organization for Haiti Relief on his site yele.org... I am so sorry about what has happened to [Wyclef's] beloved Haiti. My prayers are with him and all of the families devastated by this disaster."
What are you doing in your hometown to help Haiti?
